February Pinterest Inspired Challenge

I have some very exciting news!
I was asked to join the Pinterest Inspired Challenge Design Team!

I have been enjoying the  Pinterest Inspired Challenges every since they started last summer!
And this month's challenge does not disappoint.
Check it out:

Isn't it cool?
I decided to use my Hero Arts Background stamp & my Zigs to make my card.

I stamped my background stamp in Versamark onto some 
watercolour paper and heat embossed it in white.
I coloured in the middle of each square and then, 
with a paintbrush and water, blended the colour outward.

I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Birthday) in Versamark onto some navy cardstock
and heat embossed it in white.

Please check out the Pinterest Inspired Challenge to what the rest of the DT created 
using this photo as their inspiration and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until the ned of February to link up your project.

Thanks for looking!
