Aqua Wash Background

Do you remember my video on the amazing watercolor wash technique using a ziplock baggie? If you haven't seen it yet, you can view it HERE.

Well today, I am showcasing another card for you using that amazing technique! My friend Kelly made this card, and I just HAD to share it with you because this card is so pretty! I've even got a step by step tutorial for you so you can make it at home! Yay!
