AAA Cards - Game #66 Watercolour

Oh wow am I still reeling from the magic and mayhem of AAA Cards 2nd birthday challenge and games! But already it's time to move on to the next challenge and this one asks you to use a popular and beautiful technique.

Don't you just love how totally unpredictable and unique each card is when you use watercolours?

A bit of a smoosh with three distress ink colours started my card off down this road of discovery. Once dry the incredibly beautiful Visible Image dragonfly was stamped on top - I'm so loving how the colours shine through the wings, almost like the real thing!

My card was finished off with the sentiment quote from the same stamp set - fabulous font and scrolls!

Stamps: Visible Image, Live in the Moment
Inks: Ranger distress, blueprint sketch, cracked pistachio, peacock feathers; Memento, tuxedo black

OK so now it's your turn. Go have fun experimenting and exploring the wonderful effects that watercolours create. The rest of the AAA Cards DT have already done this and you can see the results here. We also have a wonderful Guest Designer joining us for this challenge, Tracey, I hope you'll find time to visit her blog and leave some love.

Thanks for visiting today, hope you enjoyed your time here at my blog.  And keep crafting!
