A Drunken Watercolor Misadventure

I absolutely love finding new techniques to try and also love designing with watercolor powders such as Brushos, so when I saw a new technique called Drunken Watercolors I was sure I was going to love it. Instead of spraying the Brushos with water, this technique uses rubbing alcohol and the look is very different. I am not sure I like it? It is a unique look for sure...The top card was created that way on glossy paper and the next one on Yupo paper. Both cards feature a beautiful new die from Gina Marie Designs called Duck Scene and the sentiments are from Tonic Studios. I was trying to create a sunset scene with blue, yellow, orange and red Brushos.

Since I had all my Brushos out and that gorgeous Duck Scene die, I pulled out some watercolor paper and good old fashioned water and here are two cards I made with those:

I like these much better and will stick with water the next time. But it is fun to experiment with new techniques, so will keep playing.

All are wonderfully done. I like both types of backgrounds.

I think I prefer the watercolor paper to the other technique. It's softer.
