AEI[Heart]U Challenge #4 - Watercolor


I'm super tired tonight after an uber productive day today! And, that's a good thing coming after my "day off" yesterday. Shhhhh....I was NOT uber productive yesterday.

So, I'm going to pop in and share my card then beddie bye for me.

I played along with this week's AEI<3U watercolor challenge. I have some gelatos I bought after I got a bee in my bonnet for a little home d├ęcor project that I have yet to finish start. (Color me surprised). But, I have been using them on paper and really liking them.

Challenge 4
Here is my card using the gelatos to create a watercolor background, accents from All Squared Up, and the sentiment from Laurels (LOVE that font!!!):
I colored the gelatos directly onto the paper and then used a wet paintbrush to smooth them out. After they dried (Of course I did not get impatient and give it a blast with my heat gun. I'm surprised you even asked that!), I stamped the triangles in coordinating colors and the sentiment. I added a few yellow dots for dimension and matted it all on a card base of Aqua Mist cardstock (PTI). The yellow twine is from American Crafts.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
God Bless,
