I really enjoyed the watercolour classes on my recent Cunard cruise. Here I used a technique which I learned there. It was to make a background wash, by having the paper at an angle and drawing the fairly wet brush across, using the drip line of one row to begin the next one. I changed from using Intense blue to Ultramarine, gradually adding more and more water to give the Ombre look, which is the challenge this time at CAS Mix Up.
I die cut the Sizzix 'Peace' sentiment and layered it three times to give some additional dimension. The star is a triple layered die cut from Memory Box and the the 'ON EARTH' part of the sentiment was stamped and embossed in silver from a Papertrey Ink stamp set. A few gems finished the card.
It's also for the CAS Watercolour challenge which this time has the theme SOMETHING BLUE.
