VIDEO | Rainbow Watercolour Reflections

Hello there, after posting THIS card using the Clearly Besotted Scene It City set, I got a lot of requests to make a video on how I achieved the look. I did not film making the whole card again, but the watercolour stamping part. It is easy to do, just a few scribbles really! Here is a refresh of the card:
As you will see in the video, I first stamped the London skyline from the Clearly Besotted Scene It City set with various colours of Distress Inks and then filled in the solid areas with the same ink, using  paintbrush and water. To get the simple reflections, I took the same ink on the paintbrush and scribbled it below, letting the colours blend together.

Here is the video showing how I did it:

It is really is a matter of scribbles. I think you will be disappointed now that you have seen how I did it! I do think that you need to have a loose hand with it, to really get the messy/scribble look.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment above the skyline. Took a white card base and added  a strip of patterned paper across the bottom and added the skyline panel on top with foam tape. I then added a thin strip of black cardstock to across the seam.

As I mention in the video, I do think my reflections look better in my original card but I think the water colouring on the buildings looks better in the second. Sometimes when you re-do something you improve, sometimes you are thinking about it too much and you did better the first time! Thanks so much for popping by today, I really do appreciate it. Have a great day!
