Make a wish

Hi and thanks for stopping in, this is a birthday card I made for a very special friend. The flowers and leaves were cut using CC Designs dies from paper I watercolored using distress inks. I also used the dies on the background paper to create an inlay design. The stamps are from Stamps of Life, and the sequins are from my stash. I hope it inspires you to create something of your own today.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Hi, today I want to share some cards I made using Distress Ink spritzed with water to create a watercolor effect. The stamp is Hollyhock from Impression Obsession. I made the background paper using the same colors as the flowers, both done on watercolor paper. I died some hemp cord with Distress Ink to match the stalks and used a Copic Marker to color the gems to match the green as well. The butterfly was diecut with an Impression Obsession die and covered with Stickles glitter glue. Lately I can't get enough of this watercolor technique, hope you like it!
