World of reality

Hello -

I call this card “when the sun meets the sea.” Just love pairing orange with aqua. Which is kind of weird because when I was younger these were my two least favorite colors. Amazing how taste can change.

Are you curious about that background?

I used Spiced Marmalade and Peacock Feathers Reinkers (Ranger) diluted with just a bit of water as the paint. Before brushing on the color I spritzed the watercolor paper with just a small amount of water. While still very wet I sprinkled a bit of sea salt here and there. Once dry, I rubbed off the salt and stamped the sentiment in Archival Jet Black ink.
