On a card base of Brilliant Blue, I layered Tempting Turquoise. Next, I did a piece of Ink, Spray, Smash (If you haven't tried this - check out the resources section. Faith (Markie's Mom) did an awesome tutorial on this.) Next to the ISS I added a piece of Only Orange that had been inked and run through the crimper.
My focal image is stamped in all three colors and then very loosely watercolored - smearing the colors (yes, this was intentional LOL!). It was cut out and then mounted on a piece of Tempting Turquoise and cut out again.
The sentiment is stamped in Brilliant Blue, punched and put in Styled Silver HPH. Added some brads from the same and a piece of Tempting Turquoise of ribbon.
The challenge today - do at least two things differently - stretch yourself.
1) Using the Bold Bright palette
2) Using my Styled Silver HPH (why, yes, that is called hoarding LOL!)
3) Messy watercoloring as opposed to a controlled look.
4) Remembering to use all the wonderful tutorials listed in the Resources Section (see Ink, Spray, Smash)
Thanks for looking!

WOW! This turned out really pretty. I love the look of your watercolors. The brads are really cute too.

great great job! this would have been a stretch for me too, for the same reasons. hoard my hardware, haven't done ink-spray-smash before, don't loosely watercolor, never bring out the crimper, rarely use bold brights. LOVE THIS CARD!!!!
