Shimmery Watercolouring

happy-watercolour-card This was a fun card to create. The brush stroke stamp from Happy Watercolour (OK I know the set is listed as Happy Watercolor, but I can’t bring myself to spell it that way, being the daughter of a born & bred Canadian teacher LOL). Anyway. Stamped it in Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point onto watercolour paper, and then used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to blur the images. I could have used water, but thought the Smooch Spritz would be more fun. Though you can’t see it quite so well in the image, it’s got a shimmer to it! Waited for it to dry (OK, sped it along with my heat tool), then stamped the sentiment on top.

At the risk of dating myself, after stamping it, I realized it reminded me of the cover of the Police’s Synchronicity album… so then I had to go look it up online220px-Police-album-synchronicity – ok, so not exact (I’m getting older) but pretty close….or as I like to say “Similar but different”. And with that, I’m off to listen to some of my favourite 80’s tunes.
