A card for Mom

This week I saw a beautiful card (CLICK HERE to see it) being made by the talented Cathy Zielske on her blog CZ designs.  I have been wanting to dabble in water coloring for a bit.  After watching Cathy’s video I was so inspired I decided why not give it a try.

I had to alter the supplies a bit from what she used to go with what I had (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this).  For a first attempt at water coloring a background I was pleasantly surprised and learned a lot as I went.

Once the water color panel was dry I die cut it out using a Hero Arts Nesting Rectangle die.  Next I added the sentiment that I cut out of the Simon Says Stamp Cutting plate.  I polished it off by adding a few fun sequins.   Which even though it doesn’t look like it were the exact same colors for both sets of sequins.  It was so interesting to see how the background color and the way the light hits the sequins changed the look of them!

Below you will see  a list of supplies I used for this card and the card challenge I am entering it into.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I hope you have a wonderful day!
