I can see clearly now..

This is the challenge from DCM:


Kel says- Okay, this week I would like you to use some acetate, vellum, plasma or anything else remotely 'see-through' on your card. That's it!

I was very excited yesterday to discover that the watercolour technique I'd been using with distress inks could also be used with Marvy pens. This is where you rub your ink pad on a craft mat, spray with water, and smoosh watercolour paper on top. As I have a wider range of Marvy colours than DI, you might see a lot more of these backgrounds!

Inks : Archival black; VC Old Rose; Marvy Le Plume pens crimson lake, brilliant yellow
