Watercolor Class Day 1

My second card for the day is a re-do attempt at the lesson taught by Laura Bassen on Day 1 in the online watercolor class. My mistake on my card the other day was not to dry each color before adding the next. Once all colors are dry (speeded up by my heat gun), I took the handle of my brush and dipped it into some water and splattered it over the inked BG. I started with just a white die sentiment and it just wasn't showing up well, so went with layering a black sentiment...offsetting it a bit for a shadow effect. Much better! 

INK: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers ACCESSORIES: Word die by PTI.
