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:
- Brush the colors onto Watercolor Paper until you get a look you like.
- 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.
- 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.
