Hi there! Today I have a card to share with you for the Mama Elephant & Me Challenge. This month's challenge is Watercoloring and Birthdays. I am loving watercolors lately, and I just got the adorable new Carnival Cupcakes and Carnival Toppers and couldn't wait to play along!
I wanted a soft pastel watercolor wash for behind my images, so I took some Distress Inks on an acrylic block and lots of water and brushed on light stripes of color and let them dry. Then I cut out the panel using the Femme Frames die set. I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the images, added some Wink of Stella pen and glossy accents to the cherry, and adhered it to my card base. This card is being mailed, so I had to keep it more flat than I normally like, but I think it turned out cute. I can't wait to play with these images some more! :)
That's it for now... thanks for stopping by! :)
