Red and green, plus a little orange/peach too ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend. I have a card to share with you and here it is …
An A6 card
Lots of lovely paint drippiness!
I am the nut that doesn't stop experimenting and playing!
I love this look and will be playing with some other colours soon!

Upfront I will say that the colour didn’t turn out completely as I expected on this card. The colour actually changed before my eyes, after being sprayed with water. This Spectrum Aqua pen is red. I’ve experimented a lot with my Spectrum Aqua pens this month and I especially love how they react once stamped. You can drag the colour in from the edges with a damp paintbrush once it’s been stamped. It all depends on the look or result you want. I have experimented with printer paper and the Aqua pens but that doesn’t react like card or watercolour card do. If you heavily spray printer paper it disintegrates in front of you and the end result is completely different on card versus watercolour card let alone paper, play and experimentation with these pens is very important.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
