I used Zig Clean Color brush pens to ink up an acrylic block, then spritzed water on and smooshed onto the water color paper. I repeated with several different colors, only using one color at a time. When I was happy with the result, I pulled out the dot fade layering stencil, mixed up a little whipped spackle with some of the same yellow/orange hues I used (brushed the markers onto my craft sheet and mixed the whipped spackle up in the ink to make a yellowish color), and applied over my background.
In other card news, I'm excited that Verve is in the spotlight on the Paper Crafter's Library blog today! Here's a sneak peek of the card I created for the feature, also using the same set I used on today's card.
