Swirly Bird meets Pêche Fraîche

Well, would you believe it? Pêche Fraîche makes another appearance on one of my projects. I think I’m getting used to it! The colour, that is, not the name. I’ll never get used to the name, so it will remain Pêche Fraîche for the foreseeable. 

I made this at a friend’s crafty get-together recently and had fun creating the watercolour background. After wetting the paper, I swiped with the two ink colours (Pêche Fraîche and Watermelon Wonder), allowing them to blend in the middle. Once dry, I splashed a little water around, left it for a minute or two, then dabbed it off gently with tissue paper. I painted some circles in clear water, too, then did the same - this created the paler backgrounds behind some of the flowers. 

When it had dried for the second time, I stamped on top with Swirly Bird and Watercolor Words, then finished off with some ribbon and just one Enamel Shape… in Pêche Fraîche of course.
