For my technique club this month we did the watercolor background technique - look how pretty this is - and sooooo simple.
Here's the 6x6" technique card with instructions for their technique books. You should be able to click on it to make it larger and easier to read. It's such a fun technique in that each one turns out different - just like watercoloring should.
And here's the card we made with the background and SU's adorable tea cup set. The middle cup is popped up on dimensionals with an added tiny flower and pearl.
Here's another view of the card that shows the dimension better - see the shadow behind the middle cup. The bakers twine is the finishing touch. Love this card!
