Deja Vu All Over Again
No, it's not Groundhog Day. Yes, I made this card (or actually this card) yesterday.
And then a perfect storm occurred: Debby Hughes made this card (and an excellent instructional video to go with it) and I still had this Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea stamp set and my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours out. I decided to give Debby's layered technique a try. There are some very clear signs of my amateur status on this, but I'm still pretty happy with it.
I did not do the spattering technique Debby did at the end, but I did spray the whole panel with Sparkle Shimmer Spray (you HAVE to get this stuff - it shines like diamonds (but of course doesn't photograph well! lol!))
I'm not sure I'll be turning into Watercolour-girl or anything, but it was fun to try something new and be fairly successful with it!
