Life is pretty hectic at the moment but I did have time to make a card for this week's Mixability Challenge - April Showers and used this week's colours. Not sure whether I get dessert, or not, as I did stamp my sentiment!
On wet watercolour paper, I used Pink Pirouette & Pistachio Pudding Re-inkers and let the colours run. When this was dry, I added the Glimmer Glitter Paint which gives it a lovely golden sheen IRL. I used Platinum Pearl & Gold Pearl Pearlescent Paint on the die cut basket and filled with a piece of cut burlap ribbon. Punched flowers out of dp, coated with the gold glimmer paint and added liquid pearls to their centres. Die cut the leaves and shaped using a stylus. The basket and sentiment are popped up on card using dimensionals.

What a delicious background! I love how you used your reinkers on the watercolor paper! Love the burlap you used to line your basket of flowers and the lattice die is the perfect backdrop on this lovely card!
