Watercolour: Happy Accidents

I'm actually really proud of myself for how quickly I've been using these stamps. I guess that's what comes from waiting and waiting to get something, you end up wanting to use it right away. This page was a happy accident because with the Dylusions Spray on the opposite page bled through. It was my fault, I did the page a long time ago and I used way too much ink. But I knew that I could use that bleed-through now in an interesting way. So I stamped the beautiful girl on there and coloured her with my Distress markers, making sure to wet them so the effect was soft and didn't cover the spray marks. Then I used the Distress crayons to colour in the background, keeping to the colours already suggested by the bleed through. And look! I just love how it came out. The soft effect on her face, and the pops of colour everywhere. This page was a joy from start to finish. I hope you like it as much as I do! Have you had any happy accidents like this happen in your crafting?
