Watercolor round two

When I sat down the other day to make the bright green card, I knew I wanted to make two different cards. This one is for my best friend and I've been trying to send her a card every other week.  I have to work on my picture skills because I don't think I caught just how vibrant the colors are!

Similar to the green card, I made a shape on the watercolor paper first with clean water.  This time I went with a circle.  Grabbed the colors from my Kuretake Gansai set and dabbed it randomly on the paper.  I splattered it again with the bright yellow and gold paints.  I love how it gives it a little something extra.

My circle ended up being too big for me to do any layers like I wanted so I had to cut it down.  I used scalloped circle dies from Spellbinders.  Mounted it on a white plain circle and then the purple scalloped circle.  I didn't actually have the right color paper to match so I reached for my copics and just colored around the edges.  I used BV08.  The sentiment is from Bold Buzzwords by Paper Smooches.  The little heart I colored black, used my clear Wink of Stella pen to give it some glitter and covered with Glossy Accents.

The card turned out to be a 5"x 5" square.  After I put it all together I found I somehow got a little black spot on the white base.  So I whipped out a couple sequins and called it good!

Thanks for stopping by!
