Twinkling H20's


I needed a birthday card for my wonderful son in law.  He is an outdoorsman and doesn't like a lot of frills.  I wanted to play with a watercolor background and thought I would try using my Twinkling H20's.  Oh my gosh, this was so much fun.  I used watercolor paper by Strathmore and two shades of  blue, purple and green.  I then painted a light coat of black across the green..  I love the little flecks of mica in these paints  The sparkle is beautiful IRL.

The marsh grass is a stamp from Stampin Up as is the sentiment stamp.  The flock of birds si a stamp from Stamp Scapes.  The moon was a mask made with a circle punch.  The border stickers are from Elizabeth Crafts and are black glitter.  I used a glitter pen and traced over the sentiment.

Challenges I plan to enter:
Crafting At The Weekend - Anything Goes
The Krafty Hands Challenge - Anything Goes
