Background Challange

One of my groups is doing a background challenge. It will be using supplies that you have around the house or can easily obtain. This first challenge was so fun and easy I want to share it with everyone!

I call this one Watercolor and Alcohol

1. Wet both sides of the paper with water to dampen the card.
2. Paint water color on the front of your card. The stronger the color the better this will work.
3. Quickly while the paint is still wet, dip your clean paint brush in the rubbing alcohol and lightly touch the surface of the wet paint with the alcohol. Let dry.
4. Add your own embellishments.
5. Do steps 1 and 2 but this time draw lines using a small clean paint brush and alcohol
6. Do steps 1 and 2 but this time dip a clean stiff bristle brush into the alcohol and flip the bristles with your finger, splattering the alcohol over the surface.
Let these dry and add your own embellishments!
