Using Splashes as Watercolor ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today's card is something that I've been doing a little bit of lately...watercolor.  I love the look of watercolor and was inspired by a video by thefrugalcrafter.  Check her out!  She does a LOT of different kinds of crafting and has videos galore! lol  
So I'm telling you right now I did not come up with this scene on my own.  I did use my own colors because I don't have any actual watercolor paints.  I try to use what I have on hand from Fun Stampers Journey.  For today's card that means using Journey Color Splashes! 

I tried this on several different watercolor papers and found that I liked it the best on 140 lb hot press watercolor paper.  Anything with texture didn't seem to work for me.  Probably because I wasn't using true watercolor paints.  I've never used them though so I don't really know!

These are the color of card stock that I used.

Whip Cream
Lemon Grass
Kiwi Slice
Denim Days

Yes, these are the Journey Splashes that I used.  I just did a bit of mixing. :)

Pineapple Smoothie
Sour Lemon
Sweet Berry
Cool Pool
Turbo Teal
