This is a fun background to create. First, I stamped the image onto the watercolor paper. Then I got out my ruler and using a pencil, I measured 3/4" across and up and down to make many squares. Then, I taped down my paper to a clipboard so the paper wouldn't warp since I was using watercolors. I colored each square a different color using my Jane Davenport watercolor paints. I let each color dry before moving onto the next box so it didn't bleed into the next color. I did this card for the Just Us Girls challenge using their colors this week. After it dried, I stamped the sentiment on top. I decided not to color in the bird and just left her in black and white. I was also thinking she would be a cute image for a back to school card too!!
