Online Card Class Background Check – Day 1 Water & Ink

Water & Ink

Kristina is showing us these techniques.  I did not do the last two, but I think you get the idea.

  1. Paper-to-surface ink smooshing background.
  2. Acetate ink smooshing background.
  3. Variation on acetate ink smooshing background.
  4. Watercolor background.


First up is the Paper-to-surface ink smooshing background.  I think next time I will do the smooth side of the watercolor paper.

The next card is technique #2 which is using a piece of acetate to smoosh the paint on the paper.  I can clearly see the difference on using this technique.  This feels more like watercolor.  I can see doing this technique to create a nebula look from the sky!!!!
