Watercolor Splatter for Texture

Another of our Regatta card class cards used the watercolor splatter technique. Loading your brush with a water and picking up a little gray watercolor and holding the brush above the work, lightly tap the paint brush on your index finger of the opposite hand. This causes splatters to form on the paper. More water gives you a light color but large splatters while a more dry brushe gives you small splatters like the ones on the card.

On this card, the bottom was masked off and the watercolor splatter technique as used on both the card base and the sentiment piece.

Random stamping in second generation Slate ink using the sea shells from Treasured Friends (C1594) adds the look of pattern paper.

A first generation stamped shell cut out and added to the sentiment piece finishes this card.
