Think Pink!

I tried something new for today's card. I've been seeing a 
technique called no-line watercoloring all over the internet and I've 
absolutely been blown away by some of them - there are some 
amazingly talented artists out there! 
This is my first attempt at it - not bad but definitely need more
practice at it.  




I was thinking of doing the flowers blue - don't know why - but when I saw
the challenge at CASology this week is to use pink on your project I 
decided to switch to pink flowers. 
I used picked raspberry, spiced marmalade and peeled paint distress inks
for the flowers. I then used some weathered wood to fill in the background.

In keeping with my promise to myself to use up that pile of dsp
on my desk I used pieces from that to mount the flowers onto.
A little sentiment embossed in white on black cardstock and
a few clear heart and small sequins and it's done.





If you haven't seen the no-line watercoloring technique I
encourage you to try it. It is so much fun!

Happy Stampin'
