This card background features the new PaperArtsy Infusions Colored Stains. They are a granular form of watercolor crystals similar to Brusho...but the granules are one solid color. I started with just a few colors when I bought them because I thought they were probably "same old same old". I think the colors in this line are just plain lovely. They also dissolve and blend beautifully. I'm sure I'll be getting the whole line :)
I sprinkled three different colors randomly on my craft sheet. I then spritzed the granules with water and dragged watercolor paper through. I let that absorb for a bit and then picked up some of the remaining tiny drops with a piece of acetate. I used that to stamp some more color interest onto the background. Once completely dry I added drips of color from a Prima Color Bloom Spray. Finally I added Stampendous Fran-tage White Embossing Enamel which I sprinkled here and there. I heated it to melting from the bottom. I fussy cut my faerie and adhered to the background after water coloring with Distress Inks.
