Watercolored Background

watercolored palm trees a la lilly background

I am working on a large birthday card for personal use, and created a large background in the style of Lilly Pulitzer prints. I stamped the tree in Distress Ink, then watercolored with an aqua brush and ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. The tree trunks were watercolored with more of the Distress Ink.

I am 90% sure I am using this background for the card…but, the birthday is not until August, I still have a few more weeks to waffle about it and change my mind!

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Strathmore Bristol, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens Cobalt Blue (31), Green (40),Light Green (41), Pink (25).
