This card was one of those ideas that popped into my head and I tried to create from that vision. Sometimes I get ideas this way, other times I just play until it works together. I dipped my background panel into pools of watercolor, then went to town splattering various colors of teal and brown. I tried to center them into a stripe going up the card.
For extra texture and interest to the drips, I stamped this beautiful honeycomb/poppy over the splatters. I absolutely love using this stamp for background stamping! I then layered a honeycomb chippie (Tim Holtz die) to bring some contrast.
I gave the stickers a border wash of black to compliment the butterfly, then sketched lines around them and the border of the card. I could just eat this background up!
