Today’s share is a background technique using both watercolour paper and a mask.  It takes a little drying time, but is simple to do:

 

  1. Brush the colors onto Watercolor Paper until you get a look you like.
  2. While still wet, place the mask of your choice over the paper and secure it down really flat, like with weights or tape.  Spritz with water again.
  3. Let dry.  Do not use a heat tool if you mask is plastic!!  (I know this!)

 

It may take a few tries to get it to look just as you wanted. Experiment with different colors and with different intensities of color.

 


 

I wanted to keep the rest of it simple in order to highlight the background.  Just some black words and a contrasting, but complimentary, ribbon highlights this nicely.
