Another Aquapainter Background Wash

Today we're going to play with Another Aquapainter Background Wash. We looked at this technique on Tuesday and it is so much fun that I just had to do another project with it.

If you recall some stampers were having trouble getting a nice background wash with the we are just adding some ink drops to the aqua painter barrel, filling with water and swishing the brush across the cardstock. I find the bigger aqua painter brush works nicely for the broad strokes of the wash.

Here's today's project. Blog 8-16-19 Sihlouette scenes

I used Pacific Point re-inker today and I want to keep the background showing as much as possible so I used the silhouette from Sihlouette Scenes for this card...isn't that backgroun awesome?
