Let's Celebrate

It's been a little while since I've posted a card, so I figured why not break out something I haven't used for a long time - my watercolor pencils!  I embossed  watercolor paper with a lattice background stamp, then I colored stripes with my watercolor pencils, blending with water as I went. When I was done blending the color, I used a dry paper towel to wipe the color off of the embossed area.

I used Nestabilites dies to create a framed cut out. Inside the cutout, I stamped "Let's Celebrate" from Lawn Fawn's Sopihie's Sentiments (little side note, this was my first ever Lawn Fawn set, and it's still one of my favorites). I stamped it twice withouth re-inking to try in give it a soft, shadowed look to go along with teh soft background.
I stamped the pinwheels from Lawn Fawn's Cruising Through Life with Staz-on ink on watercolor paper. I used the same watercolor pencils to color in the pinwheels, then I cut the pinwheels out and added them to my card.
Just a quick little card I created, because the idea popped into my head!

Thanks for stopping by!
