A little Watercolour


I'm just popping in today to share a card that I made using Reverse Confetti's

I wanted to create a dark night scene using some watercolouring.
So I started with some watercolour paper and paints.


When those were dry, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiments and "stars" (they're actually flowers from the Petals 'n Posies stamp set in white.
Then, I stamped the larger "stars" and heat embossed those in gold.
The "YOU" was diecut from white cardstock with Mama Elephant's Inline Alphabet dies.

I layered the watercolour panel over some gold shimmer cardstock.
A little stitching finishes it off.





Thanks for looking!
