Today I have another card that is inspired by the Online Water Colour Class I took last week. You can find out more details about that here
The technique to create the background involves ink and an Acrylic block and was shared by Laura Bassen. I won't go into detail about the background because it was part of the class content but I will show you how it morphed from a background to a finished card!
So here is the background - you can see I used a large Acrylc block and the pencil lines I used to line it up by. And to create the "Moon" I punched a 1" circle and used the negative of the circle to create a mask which I then coloured with a Versamark marker and then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
Next I stamped the sailing ship image in Black Stazon ink and coloured the sails with a White Gel Pen. Then came the finishing details…
A touch of the rustic with the Burlap Ribbon and some twine and an Antique Brad :-)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and I hope that you too might be able to look into some water colouring - it seems to be the latest trend at the moment and the Class provides so many different techniques to make it easy for everyone - even me :-)
Happy stamping until next time,
