Playing with my mediums...

This was a fun one.
Somewhere online I saw the idea of using alcohol with water color.
I cut a front piece of water color paper and smeared water over the whole piece.
I pulled out my Artist's Loft water color tray and floated the blue and green to the top and bottom of the piece.
Using a brush and rubbing alcohol I dripped drops over the water colored area.
Once it was thoroughly dry I ran it through the Big Kick with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
using my Faber Castell chalk pencils I colored the grass and the bird.
using my paper stumps I smoothed out the pencil marks for a muted look.
I distressed the edge and glued it to the front of a water color paper base card.
