Here are three cards for One-Layer Simplicity #3--Just Add Water. The challenge is to use water to make a background or spritzed on a stamp to create a watercolor effect.
I sort of improvised by inking up my acrylic blocks with Kaleidacolor Spectrum Inks, spritzing them with Glimmer Mist, and then stamping to create a slightly shimmery background.
The blue spectrum pad made a lovely background for this little snowman and snowflakes from Hero Arts Screen Shot set.
You can see a bit of the shimmer in the close-up, plus I used a little Stickles on the flakes.
These dark colors seemed suitable for a Halloween card, especially when I found this fun spider from Technique Tuesday in my stash. And then I found googly eyes. How fun!
And finally, these luscious shades of green made me think of trees, so I pulled out Papertrey's Through the Trees set.
What a fun and easy way to make interesting backgrounds! Watery techniques really do yield some very interesting--sometimes unpredictable--results. I'm going to continue to play with water throughout the month, so look for more OLS entries from me in the future.
