I create a nice card for a friend that needs to get better. and I liked it so much that I decided to make a video for it. I did use my watercolors for this technique, more exactly to make a night sky with stars and everything.
A perfect night sky has a few things that stand out, some patches of bright colours, like yellows and purples and oranges, some nice dark blue on a black background, and loads o stars.
So for this technique, you need to put a lot of water on the paper, and then start with the bright colors, then follow with the blue and last the black.
Remember to put a lot of color, because once they dry, they become more dull. In the end flick your brush with some white for some star splatter.
I wanted this card to look like a postcard from space. So i needed a polaroid, and i made myself one, cut a pice of paper 3 inch by 2 and 1/4. To cut the inside panel, i measured 1/4 inch on each side, except the bottom that measures 1 inch.
