Disappearing Acts, Part 2
I forgot that I did one more image for GPP Street Team Crusade No. 55. This one was done wet-on-wet with yellow and blue watercolors. I thought that I had used too much water and I also wanted some texture, so I took a paper towel and lightly laid it on top of the whole background to soak it up. When I lifted the paper towel, it left little dots everywhere the paper towel had been. After I let the background dry, I stamped on the flower with more watercolor.
This time around the watercolor was more concentrated and since it was stamped on a background where some color was lifted, stamped image really seemed to pop instead of blend with parts of the background. If I do try this again, I think it might look better if I wet the stamped image a little more and then lift some of paint with a paper towel again.
