You are AWESOME!!!

This week at the Friday Mashup I'm the hostess and I'm bringing us a fun watercolor challenge along with a Sketch. I decided to keep the sketch pretty open to allow for fun watercolor backgrounds or techniques. 

I created a bright background using some Distress Inks in Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron & Salty Ocean. Using a piece of watercolor paper cut to size I added the ink directly to my craft mat and spritzed it with water. Then I smooshed the paper into the ink and dried each color with my heat tool before adding the next. 

Once the background was dry I stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Super Script set in VersaFine black ink. Then I added the watercolor piece to a piece of black cardstock and then onto a white card base. For some bling I added some Sequins in coordinating colors and a few Sparkling clear from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Head over to the Friday Mashup challenge and see what the other Design Team members created this week. We hop you will join us... The challenge is open until Wednesday @ 6pm EST. 

I'm also entering this in the current Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp.. This week it's Anything Goes.
