Just Us Girls Trend Week

This week Bobby is our hostess at Just Us Girls and it's Trend Week!  She picked Watercolor Background for the trend.  This is a great one so many ways to achieve this.  I decided to use my Distress Oxides for my watercolor background.

I used a smoosh technique with my Dylusions acrylic block.  Basically you add some ink (I used Oxides) to the end of the block, spritz water and smoosh down on your paper.  I used Distress Watercolor paper.  My images and sequins are from Unity Stamp Co and the ribbon is Stampin Up.

I used this block.  Added color like you see here and spritzed with water.  Placed down on the watercolor paper and just pressed on it and lifted.

Be sure to stop on by our amazing design team for loads of inspiration!

Like your take on our watercolour background Maria. Haven't done that in ages. Such pretty soft colours.

I love block stamping -- turned out great

Definitely another way to achiever a watercolor background, Maria, and a great one at that. It's been a while since I used this technique so thanks for reminding. Yours turned out great.

Fabulous background using the blocks and oh, how pretty it is! Perfect for your lovely flower! Adding this to my 'must try' techniques next time I'm faced with another watercolour background challenge!
