Watercolored Background with Chrissie Tobas

Catherine Gallery, Projects, Techniques

Hi, it's Chrissie here today.  Spring Ink colors paired with a few pops of black make for the perfect Congrats card! The newest Catherine Pooler inks and dies were used to create this soft card.

Congrats WMNo colored cardstock was used; the card base was created with Melon Ice ink and an ink blender!

To create the ombre effect, I gently added the Melon Ice ink using a blending tool. I started out with minimal ink, then kept adding layers until I felt I got the effect I wanted. For the background, I used a large brush to add Sweet Sixteen as a wash (I love using these inks as watercolors!) and then I flicked the other ink colors onto it until I felt like I had the background right.

Catherine's inks are amazing for blending and building beautiful background pieces!

Thanks Catherine for having me today.
