Today, I am posting a card for the love of working with Spectrum Aqua markers and I can't resist a challenge!!!! My card is all about emboss resist, so you know that means it starts with heat embossing images and then creating a watercolor a background.
Here's my card:
For the background, I literally scribbled Spectrum Aqua markers (Nature) one color at a time (light to dark) in random areas around the cardstock panel and then quickly spritzed with water to help the color soften and blend. Before each color change, I heat set. There's probably a total of 5-6 colors on this panel. Once it was dry, I spritzed the entire panel with the Tim Holtz's Distress Sprayer to create splotches. I heat set after a few spritzes and then spritzed again.
For the base panel, I colored directly around the perimeter of a premium white cardstock (Catherine Pooler) with a Spectrum Aqua marker to match the blue in the blended background.
I rather like the uneven movement of color in the background. Even though the result isn't necessarily screaming autumn, the vibe of autumn is clearly there nevertheless.
Thanks for stopping by!
