Messy Watercolor Pooling

Hey there! Today I was inspired to step out of my comfort zone with some messy watercolor pooling using the Bird Crazy stamp set. I bought this set a while ago and never found a great card to use it on, but today I was inspired to pull it out for this fun card.

To start off this card, I used my MISTI stamping tool and lined up all of the crazy birds onto my panel. The MISTI allows you to stamp it more than once in the same spot to get a nice crisp dark image.

To watercolor the fun birds I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to get a bright vibrant messy look. Now this is where the real fun starts! Watercolor using whatever colors you like and be sure to go outside of the lines. It may look terrible at first, but the more it drys the better it looks, so give the images some time to dry.

For the background, I added brown watercolor onto and acrylic block and added it onto the background on the panel. If you like you can also add some splatters onto the background using the same brown color.

To add the sentiment I cut a hole in the canter birds wings and slid the sentiment panel in. Finally, I added the bird panel onto a top folding card base with no border.
