For the background, I used Pat's Spattered Ombre watercolor technique. I watercolored in ombre fashion a piece of watercolor paper, using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. While still wet, I dropped spatters of rubbing alcohol onto the watercolor. That created those fabulous white spots. I added the Life is a beautiful ride verse, repeating it using my Misty to get it evenly spaced and straight. You can see the technique tutorial for the Spattered Ombre background HERE.
It's a fun technique, and I will definitely be making more of these backgrounds in different colors!
There is a new challenge on the Technique Junkies blog HERE to use this technique. You can enter anytime before February 12th for a chance to win a $25 store credit towards TJ stamps!
