Rainy Days

This May has been particularly rainy in Vancouver. I woke up one rainy morning to an email reminding me of this Sunday's Vancouver Artist Trading card swap. Here are the results of all of this inspiration!



These backgrounds were created on large sheets of watercolour paper using acrylic ink. After applying large swaths of colour, thin black stripes were added using a eye dropper. Then, I quickly dry brushed the strips for this "rainy" effect. When dry I cut them into ATC sized pieces.
