Water Color Backgrounds 2017

I had this weekend off so after getting all the weeding done in my garden and around the property, I spent time making watercolor backgrounds. I tried Color Burst Crystals (like Brusho) but I still like Twinkling H2O as my go to watercolors. It took me awhile to figure out how to get a consistent but random background look without everything turning into a muddy mess.  
I finally figure out if I painted the watercolor onto my block, mist lightly (key here) and let the block sit on the watercolor paper for awhile (another key step), I avoided the running muddy mess.  Now with a stack of backgrounds made I decided to try the inlay technique for the cards I'm making for the "share handmade kindness" project.
