On to my project!
I wanted to make a birthday card since my stash is getting a little low on them, so I pulled out some watercolor cardstock, embossing folder and my Distress Inks and went to work. I rubbed on three different Distress ink colors (all supplies are listed below) over my embossed watercolor cardstock panel. I then flicked on water to give it that splotchy look you see. I love how it came out!
For the sentiment of this card, I simply used the Make a Wish and the balloon, which I popped up with some foam adhesive and added a black and white twine string to for some interest.
I diecut three tags and left the sentiment tag simply white with some purple ink and a little rhinestone to dot the "i" for some sparkle.
I chose a strip of dark purple patterned paper behind my watercolored panel and glued everything down. Simple and really punchy card!
It's hard to capture, but the balloon and the center of the hearts on the second tag are colored in with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. They give a nice shimmer to these elements.
I hope you have fun with this challenge!
