Two for One

Recently I had some fun making simple watercolour backgrounds to turn into cards. I worked on watercolour paper as large or larger than my basic card fronts so I would have the option of using the whole panel or a section of it. Today’s cards are a 2-for-1 combo because the negative panel is just as pretty as the floral piece.

You can see on the negative panel I painted loose stripes of colour, picking up distress inks from a glass mat with a wide brush. Some blending of colour occurred adding interest to the simple stripes.

I also embossed the card base above with the ‘weathered’ embossing folder from Taylored Expressions. Very simple cards but handy to have for any occasion.

    These colours look great together with the lines of coloured wash Heather, and the flower shape you cut looks very pretty but I think my preference is for the negative flower shape which shows off all the lovely washy background. x

    A brilliantly simple idea Heather, and as you say, the two for one is a good way to have a card on hand when suddenly required. I like the way the colours have blended on the positive card.
