This has been a week to stay inside, as the outdoor temperatures are hot! This thermometer is on my patio, in the shade. Needless to say, I didn't spend much time outside. This is our hottest time of the year here in the southern Nevada desert, so we expect this weather and enjoy being inside.
I have spent a lot of time in my craft room, making cards. I made the backgrounds with watercolors on watercolor paper. After spreading very wet blobs of color onto the paper, I placed plastic wrap over it and pressed it down with lots of wrinkles. Once dry, this gives a variety of results. I played around with stamps and have found that solid (silhouette style) stamps work the best of this background.
I had fun trying to create framing to compliment the in colors.
