Trying my hand at water colour



I have been wanting to try water colour for sometime now and I am finally getting a chance to  have a go at it. I will be practicing backgrounds etc as much as possible and hopefully will get better over time. For this card I used aqua markers in green, blue and a bit of orange. I did a few strokes of each colour onto the card and spread the colour with a paint brush and water. The colour on the wooden tree was done by accident. I had placed the tree onto the card whilst the cardstock was still wet and the tree picked up the coloured background. After the paper was dry I printed the sentiment onto the card and lastly I stuck the wooden tree onto the card. I am going to be pretty busy over the next few weeks but hopefully I will find some time to practice my water colour technique which is so much fun.
