Technique Tuesday ... Monet Technique

It is Tuesday and I am back with this week's technique.  It is a quick and easy technique but very pretty for a background piece.
 Here's what you will need:
  • Stampin' Up! Watercolor Crayons
  • Aqua Painter
  • Glossy Cardstock
  • Stamp Set - I used Everything Eleanor
 Choose three coordinating colors of Watercolor Crayons.  I used Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Rich Razzleberry.  Draw squiggly lines in each color, spacing them apart so you can get all three colors in an area.
 Here's what your paper will look like.
 Take your Aqua Painter and give it a light squeeze so you get some water down into the brush.  Then begin to tap, tap, tap down on the paper.  Do not keep the bristles down on the cardstock as you move it.  You want to dab straight down and come back up.
 Repeat over your entire cardstock and let it dry.  Do not try to get rid of the air bubbles that you might have on the cardstock.  These help enhance the look.
 After the cardstock is dry, you can stamp your images onto it.
I finished this card off using the sentiment from Perfectly Penned set and a Rose Red seam binding ribbon.

Forever Stampin',
