Feel Better Snoopy Watercolour Card

I have love and hate feelings toward this card. I love it because I LOVE Snoopy and the Peanuts and also because the technique I was trying turned out really well. Why I hate this card is because it is a get-well-soon card, I only make these cards when someone is not feeling well and that's never good! >_<

This technique is called Vibrant Watercolor Wash Background, taught by Jennifer McGuire. I stamped the image first and then covered it with rubber cement (which created a resist when it dried). Then I painted a vibrant watercolour wash on the background. After the paint has dried I rubbed the rubber cement off and stamped the sentiment on top.

I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, because it's not supposed to react with water. However, my image still bled a little and I'm quite disappointed.

Hope the recipient of my card will get well soon or at least feel better. =)

Thanks for visiting,
