LOOKING AT THE PAPER IN A DIFFERENT WAY

My first thought in looking at these papers by Prima was to see what flower I would want to color in and what color I should make them. As I took at look at a scrap on my desk (yes, I just love scraps on me desk, so much inspiration comes from them!), I wondered what would happen if I left the flowers and vines white and colored the background? This is the result. Again, I reached for my watercolor crayons and watercolor brush. I like to take the brush tip to the end of the crayon and "take" color off of the crayon. With this paper, it is easy to keep adding coats of color until you get the intensity you were looking for. The ending was simple, I added a few self adhesive pearls and my card was finished.




Here's a close up look at the flower that was left without color being added to it and my pearl accents.
