I've seen a lot of cards lately with black and white flowers and a colored background. I tried making a background with Copics and found it difficult. Watercoloring the background turned out to be a lot easier, especially since I wanted the color darker on the top with a gradual fade.
I started this background with Inktense watercolor pencils on watercolor paper but quickly switched to Zig Clean Color markers (much better for this technique). Added a few "water drops" and a frame. No masking, just careful with the paint brush...
This card is going to my fantastic mother in law. I love how it turned out!
