1. First I masked around the edge of the watercolour card to give a border.

  2. On a piece of plastic I wiped one of the dress oxides onto it and then sprayed some water onto it and mixed it with a paint brush. I them turned the plastic over onto my watercolour card and pressed it onto the card. Lifting it up and moving the colour around.

  3. I did this with each colour, keeping the purples together and greens together. This made a really interesting background.

  4. I then painted a silhouette of a tree in black watercolour onto the background.

  5. I carefully stamped the swinging girl in the middle of the card so the swing was hanging off the branch.

  6. I backed the tree picture onto a piece of dark grey card and added it to card blank.
