The watercolour background I created by scribbling onto a piece of baking paper with stamp-and- write pens in Island Indigo and Crushed Curry, spritzing with water then dragging the Whisper White over it to pick up the ink. After it had dried, I gave it a spray with Pearl Perfect Pearls, which gave it a nice shimmer in the light and somehow brightened the colours. I tried using watercolour paper and also ink pads rather than markers but these did not give such a pleasing blend of colours.
The 'daisies' and the colours seemed joyful, so I used some bits from Endless Wishes, even though this is a birthday card, not a Christmas card.
Thanks to the Just Add Ink team for another thought-provoking challenge!
