Fun, Watercolor Background

Hi there!

I hope your Saturday is going well! Mine has been totally relaxing and fun!

I just can't stop playing with watercolors! Yup, I made another card for Virginia's View challenge #1!


This time I used Claudine Hellmuth's paints mixed with lots of water. The panel is Tim Holtz's Distress Watercolor Cardstock  - LOVE this stuff! Even when it warps a little, it is so thick that you can get it to go back to a flat shape just by forming it a bit in your hands. Awesome!

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp - it's one included in their, You Can Do Anything clear set. The little flower-sequins were a gift from my friend Sally - thank you, Sally - I love them!

Have a great weekend! Thanks for the visit! ♥
