I have been having loads of fun watercoloring lately so this challenge was no challenge for me : ) As a matter of a fact I had a hard time stopping so I created TWO cards : )

Good through Monday July 4th
For my first card I colored my background with regular water color paint. This is a VERY new technique for me. Lately I have had some success and some failure but I'm going to keep practicing because I really love the look. Next I stamped my image and sentiment.
I wanted the brushes and pencils to really POP so I colored them with my Zigs. I just love all the bright colors you get with Ziggys! : ) I carried the bright playful colors over when selecting the sequins for my shaker card.
When you visit Serendipity Stamps don't forget to stop in at the Yard Sale!! Where there are loads of great buys including DP for only $1.00. The pp I used on this card is from one of those bundles : )
I love both this Paint Brush image and the pretty little sentiment so I paired them together for a fun card! I cut my Tan colored card base a little thinner than an A2 size to give plenty of room for my DP "flag" to wave : ). I put my water color panel in the trash can LOL and then splattered until my heart's content : ). Finally I painted my Paint Brush image with Zigs and finished off the brush tip with a Wink of Stella. A few well placed (not even hiding any boo boos) sequins and Walla! (Which is South Dakotan for Voila!) heeheehee
