Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #165 - Artsy Backgrounds

Hi there!
Today, I have a card to share for the current PTI Make-It-Monday Challenge, Atrsy Watercolor Backgrounds.

I have been all about watercolor lately thanks to the online card class that I am taking, and I had so much fun with this card!  My new release order just came in the mail and I had to dig in right away! 

I used Watercolor Wonder to create a striped background, then drug my waterbrush along the stripes to get the colors moving.  I stood my card panel on end to let it run a bit too.


PTI MIM - Artsy Backgrounds

In the top right corner I used the Circle Scribbles dies and it the largest scribble from black cardstock.  The butterfly is from the Butterfly Dreams stamp set and the sentiment and flight trail are from the Happy Trails set.  A sprinkle of black sequins and a black card base and done! :)

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Watercolor Wonder, Butterfly Dreams, Happy Trails
Dies: Butterfly Dreams, Circle Scribbles
Paper: PTI True Black, Canson 140lb. watercolor paper
Ink: Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Limeade Ice, Hawaiian Shores, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Water Brush, Avery Elle sequins

That's all for now... thanks for stopping by! :)

Very pretty card! It reminds me of those pieces of art on Pinterest where the crayons are melting down the canvas. I need those dies for the circles. The butterfly is so pretty too!
