Watercolour Bleed background - Altenew  Sketch Floral & Watercolour 36 Pan set

But when it came to the background, I wanted a soft wash as though the watercolours from the flowers were bleeding out. Watercolour bleed background technique allows you to softly build colour around the flowers in the background before going back in to define the flowers.  Video Tutorial Watercolour Bleed background: Written and photos Watercolour Bleed background: The stamp set I'm using is the Altenew Sketchy Floral stamp set and has a lovely large floral...

Simple Card Using Heffy Doodle's "You're Weird" Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!This week I'm sharing a simple appreciation card using Heffy Doodle's "You're Weird" stamp set!
