watercolor wash background tutorial for atcs, inchies, twinchies, etc . . .

Watercolor Wash backgrounds

First, get a heavy weight piece of cardstock nice and
wet. You can use lighter weight paper, but heavier
weight is better, and watercolor paper is best.

(Don't over rub and pill up your paper.)

Get your paints nice and juicy, and brush spots of
color on your paper--it will bleed and blur out.

Allow it to dry, and you have a lovely piece of
background paper! Won't that make some pretty atcs?
