I love trying new techniques, and Jennifer McGuire has an amazing one called Watercolor Swiping, which is how this colorful background was created. You can see her video here.
For this technique, I used Pink Fresh's Liquid Watercolors on a baby wipe and swiped it across watercolor paper. It turned out beautifully! I did try different papers. Watercolor and Bistrol papers worked wonderfully, but regular inexpensive cardstock didn't blend and warped.
I added Pink Fresh's Circle Frame With Botanicals and Smile Word dies cut from white cardstock. To finish off the card Nuvo Jewel Drops in a variety of colors were added.
