AAA Cards Challenge #66 - Watercolour

Hello everyone,

First I wanted to thank you all for a wonderful Birthday Bash Celebration.  Be sure to watch for our winner post coming up soon.  

We are back with another challenge and it's a fun one.  Watercolour.  I love watercolouring with lots of mediums and you never know what you can use either.  If you follow me on social media, you would have scene me to a couple of cards with gel pens.  That's fun because you probably already have these in your craft room.  Now they all don't work but it's fun to play around and see what does.

Our sponsor for this challenge is the amazing Happy Little Stampers


$20 Gift Certificate

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the ever so talented Tracey 

Now on with my card!

I used the Mama Elephant Freestyle Florals and heat embossed the images with white embossing powder on some Canson watercolour card stock.  I then took some Abandoned Coral distress ink and my water brush and watercoloured in the flowers.  I set that aside to dry and went on to the die.  I used the SSS painted thanks die and cut that out of black card stock.  

Once the watercolour panel was dry I then took one of the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies and cut out a small piece from the images I coloured.  I popped up the panel with foam tape and added the sentiment with foam tape and liquid adhesive on the portion that was over the panel.
