Happy Birthday

Well, Hello everyone! :) So, I'm just now starting to feel like I'm getting back on track and caught up with things! Yaaaay! ;)

Today, I'm sharing a card I made for a friends new challenge..."Virginia's View Challenge"!

Here is my take on 'Watercolor'...

I have been playing around with this whole 'watercolor' stuff for a little bit and I don't think I'll be stopping anytime soon! lol I never really knew how addicting it can be, let alone all the different techniques there are!

So, for my card, I just continued to play around. I used spritzers (two different colors) and just some plain water. I sprayed my watercolor paper first with water and masked off my bottom half of my paper. Then sprayed on my spritzers and took the mask off and moved my paper in different directions. I only used the masked upon spraying because I didn't want a 'clean line' look. I just repeated doing this until I was satisfied with my colors/outcome. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
