Today I’d like to give you another idea for watercolor backgrounds. This one is so easy and fast to make. I chose my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors for this project and, inspired by the sea colors I saw on the beach, made an ombré background starting from blue-green and finishing with more deep dark blue tones. I applied the colors using only vertical brush strokes and used a small amount of water as I wished to keep my colors very vibrant.
While the background was drying I colored (with copic markers this time) the cute fishes from Fish Friends digital stamp set designed by a very talented Jess Gerstner. To tie everything together I brought some gold splotches and dots both on the card front and the images. I used a gold shimmer spray, but applied it with a regular brush: painted the gold dots on the fish images in some areas and flicked randomly a few splotches on the card base.
That’s all for today! Hope you like today’s card and the Fish Friends stamps! If so I have a coupon code for you. You can save 25% with the code GDTFAN at Jess Crafts Digitals.
