Let it Run! + Big Sale

Oh boy - Ann's first challenge this week is right up my alley - it's called "let it run." Such an arty look, and different every time. If I really think back, this is probably MOST stampers' introduction to watercolor and its properties, honestly. That and ink smooshing.

Instead of watercolor, I decided to use paint sprays, because they dry shiny, and that's a totally different, fun look for water-reactive mediums.

I used fuchsia, yellow and turquoise sprays after using Hero Paste with this mosaic stencil on hot press watercolor paper. Then I just kept spritzing it with water until it started to move and blend. I kept some areas untouched by water to preserve that fun spray texture so the whole thing wasn't smooth. 

Then I cut a white and black sentiment with this die and layered them for a drop shadow.

While I was doing this I was thinking this would be an EXCELLENT way to do multiples of Christmas cards - they'll all be unique (so I wouldn't get bored making them, and I could use a bunch of stencils and paste one day, and all the sprays the next. So that's something to consider.
