CAS - Modern Water Color



When I have a creative block (which happens all the time), I make background papers.  I take a big sheet of heavy weight watercolor paper and slap on some twinkling H2O paint. It takes a lot of time to paint out of those little tubs of paint. It will sit in the corner of the studio for months before I do anything with it.  After being inspired by Susan's blog (see post below) I made a card using my watercolor stash.  The little butterfly (in the original card post) didn't look right so I went for a  more modern art look.  I edged it with a gold Krylon pen and mounted it on black card stock. Guess you could call it a manly card. :)

Oh wow, these are so inspirational. I have to try just messing with my H20's on WC paper with no real purpose in mind. Thanks for sharing.

Lisa, these look like fine art! Oh, my goodness! The crimped triangles are the perfect accent...and the colors you've used are sooooo rich and lovely.
