I was inspired by the colour graphic over at Cupcake Inspirations (see below) so I decided to make a smooshed watercolour background with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn). The cute image was a freebie from Cre8ive Hands a while back (thank you!). By the way, Cre8ive Hands Friends has a brand new challenge so I'll be joining that as well.
With an inkjet printer, it's a bit difficult to do any kind of watercolour with digis as the ink runs as soon as the water touches it. So I created the background first and then printed the digi. I paper-pieced the moon with white according to the colour inspiration.
The image was die-cut with Waltingmouse Stamps Scalloped Stitched Rectangle. I die-cut two smaller Scalloped Stitched Rectangles and then blended Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on each one to coordinate with the watercolour panel. I did the same for the sentiment with Mowed Lawn and then die-cut the Simon Says Stamp Happy, along with a second die-cut in black. The stamped greeting is from Simon Says Stamp Happy clear stamps. The watercolour panel is popped up with thin craft foam, and I added a number of green and blue flower sequins.
