Watercolor Blog Hop & Giveaway Hosted by Pretty Pink Posh

http://prettypinkposh.com/2015/06/watercolor-blog-hop.html 


Welcome and Thank You for stopping by today!
What a fun event! Thanks to Pretty Pink Posh for hosting!
AND I have a GIVEAWAY, More about that Below

I have to admit, I struggle with water color. I love the look, I just have the hardest time
getting MINE to look like that! That being said I went with a watercolor background!


And  I had to get those sequins in so I went with a Shaker Card!

I made my background paper by first stamping and clear embossing a Hero Arts background stamp with Versa Mark and clear embossing powder for a resist effect.
I generously soaked my paper before painted watercolors directly on, blending and adding
color until I got the desired look. Since you can never have enough sparkle I sprayed way too much some shimmer mist on top! For my shaker I used some fun foam sandwiched between transparency paper after cutting my window with Spellbinder Circles.

Finally I stamped my sentiment with Hero arts ombre ink on the inside of the card
