Watercoloured background - Thinking of You

I'm following the StampNation Masterclass - Aqua markers by Spectrum Noir and the challenge is "Just Add Water"

I did a background that was inspired by a card from Theresa Momber on Gina K's StampTV.  Theresa blended inks together to make her background.  I CASE'd it using Spectrum Noir Aqua markers to watercolour.

I made my lake with blues and greens and a bit of a lighter fawn just above the lake.  I used some Catherine Pooler brown ink for the ground.   I stamped the Goose from Stampin' Up! Wetlands stamp set.  Ive added some colour to him with the markers.  The reeds and sentiment are from the same set.  I added some little birds from the Birds of a Feather set by Catherine Pooler Designs to finish it off.

The markers really made it easy to watercolour.  I just scribbled some colour onto my acrylic block, added some water and it was ready to paint onto my wet watercolour card. 

thanks for stopping by.
