VIDEO: Watercolor Block Background Technique -- In the Meadow Deer Card

This is probably the first card in 14 years that I have made without stamping words on the front. I've always said a card is naked without a greeting of some kind. However, I just couldn't find the right spot to add words to this card. Now that I am looking at the photo, I feel like I could add some tiny words in black ink in the sky on the right side... But I think it's okay with the words too. I love the way the deer "pop" against the watercolor background. Watch my video below to see how I did the background using markers, a Stampin' Spritzer, and a clear block.
