I came up with this card

I began by stamping various circles from the Happy Little Stampers Mix Mash stamp set onto watercolour card and I then used masking fluid in each circle. Once it was dry, I watercoloured over it and once again left it to dry before rubbing off the masking fluid. I used a Papertrey Ink Tipped Top die to cut the wonky shape and also cut the same shape from vellum to soften the colours down.

I stamped and embossed 'sending you' on the vellum and added the PTI Hugs die cut across the panel, hiding the glue that stuck the vellum onto the watercolour card behind the letters. To finish off, I cut a larger wonky panel, layered everything up and raised it on foam tape.

I hope you will be inspired by us this week and join in with the challenge. You can see lots more from the DT over at the ATSM Bog.

Thanks for stopping by.
