Creating a Watercolor Background

Hello crafters!
Kristie here today from 
Today I'm showing you an easy way to make a
watercolor background.
Here's what you need.
A couple colors of Distress Ink,
A small spray bottle filled with water.
A tag and/or watercolor paper
which I used but didn't show here.
On a craft mat or other non absorbent surface
(such as wax paper or glass)
Smooch (yes that is a very technical term) your ink onto 
the mat.
Give it a few spritzes of water.
Next put your paper onto the wet ink surface.
Here I'm using the watercolor paper.
If you have "uncolored" spaces,
blot up more of the color, until you are
happy with the look.

Here are the watercolor paper and the tag when they 
were finished drying.
You can use any number of color combinations.
I hope you'll try this technique and see what you can come up
with.  To see what I did with these "creations" 
hop over to my blog 
where I'll post what I made with them.

Thanks for stopping by today,
I hope you'll stop by again soon.
