Watercolor Washes

Watercolor washes are pretty trendy, but sometimes it's hard to achieve the right look with a wash.  This is a fool proof method!  You'll need watercolor paper, an ink pad, a window sheet and a color spritzer filled with just water.  Smoosh your ink pad onto your window sheet and spray with your spritzer.  The more water the lighter the wash will be the less water the more concentrated color you'll get.  Once you're happy with your water/ink ratio on your window sheet turn the window sheet over and smoosh it onto your watercolor paper.  It's seriously that easy!!!!  You can do this as many times as you need with as many colors.  Though if you're using multiple colors just make sure they work together or you could end up with an ugly brown or gray.   
Once my wash was dry I heat embossed a greeting and added some balloons.  So cute!!!!!  I love the pop of black and white on the bottom too.

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!
