Catching up on Homework

Today I want to share a card I made for the OCC Watercolour Class inspired by Aga's card and method of making the background with watercolour pencils.

I have used Inktense pencils and the sentiment and label dies are from Papertrey Ink. The tiny banners were cut with a Penny Black die.  This was take 2 for the background, because I tried to splatter some black on the background like Aga and made a complete mess of it! So I resorted to sequins, but you have no idea how much trouble I have with the 'random' placement! 

I'm entering this in the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday where the theme is Artsy Watercolour backgrounds - it sort of fits the theme!


  1. Very pretty water colored background.

  2. Love the watercolored background - and I definitely know what you mean about difficulty with splatters and random placement of sequins, dots, etc. These look perdect!

  3. I love your watercolor background!!! Those colors are amazing! I love the stitch look. I need to play with that technique. Great job!
