Make it Monday #165: Artsy Watercolour Backgrounds

Oops... As I was typing the title, I just now realized the theme this week is supposed to be "backgrounds"! Oh, well, my watercolouring is on the background of the skateboards--hope that will do! I stamped on two different colours of ink, then smudged them with water, as demo'd by Betsy this week in the PTI challenge. The middle skateboard has 3 different inks, which were painted on by using a paintbrush and water to pick up ink that was "smooshed" onto my craft sheet. I diecut several layers for each skateboard to make them look more like boards, and to give them some dimension (which you can't see in this photo!)

Our great-nephew has a birthday coming up, so this will go to him. I used Maile Belle's card, in the PTI Gallery, as inspiration for this card.
All materials are PTI. Thanks for looking!
