OWH Sunday Sketch

Yesterday I saw this card during the PTI blog hop and loved the watercolor wash look to the striped pattern.  When I saw today's OWH Sunday Sketch I thought that design would work perfectly.


I used SU! watercolor paper for the main layer and created the stripes using reinkers on a baby wipe (Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, and Cherry Cobbler).  Its important (especially using watercolor paper which absorbs a lot more) to let the paper dry ... you can see a little bit of blooming on the words and flight trail.  It actually looks pretty neat, but if it bloomed much more I would have had to remake the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
