For this card, I did quite a few techniques. The first was stamping the owls onto the watercolor paper. Then heat embossing them. After that I sprayed the paper down with my water bottle. I found that the best was to get the Arteza watercolor paper to work is to spray it down first. I then used my Arteza pens to color them in and blended that out with my waterbrush. Once, I was happy with how the owls look. I next created a mask by stamping the owls onto a Post-It note and the fussy cutting that out. Then I placed the mask over the owls. Next, I took out my homemade stencil, part of a sponge, and my distress oxide ink pad. I then used those items to create my cloudy background. After that I sprayed the oxide ink with my water bottle. This was my first time using the oxide ink to create cloudy background. But, I like how it turned out. What do you think?
