Strawberry Tasty Treat with Watercolor Wash Technique

Today's project features a fun and easy coloring technique called Watercolor Wash.  It's a great technique to reach for to create a fun watercolor background look.  You could stamp over it or leave as a background piece, like today's Strawberry Tasty Treat card.  Bonus: learn how to color Baker's Twine!
