Cling wrap watercolour card

Today’s card is for the Inspiration Journal April challenge to use a watercolour technique. I made this card the cling wrap and watercolour technique which I shared here and here.

First, the flowers were white embossed on watercolour paper and then yellow and green watercolours were painted on top. The embossing resists the paint. A piece of cling wrap was wrinkled to make a grassy pattern and placed on top of the wet paint. It was left there until the paint dried. A bit of orange was dry brushed at the bottom of the card and painted to enhance the flowers a bit.

The letters were die cut from Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Core’dinations cardstock, sanded a bit and layered on top of each other, to create a shadow effect. The Vintage Lace was die cut from the darker green paper.

Thank you for looking!
