I ended up making 4 of these for a private card challenge that I belong to.

I used CUTplorations word dies “happy” and “BIRTHDAY” to die cut the words out of a panel I’d watercolored.

Here’s the card I made with the watercolored panel:

Here’s my card: img_4978_edited-1I used a stamp set from Uniko, Background Builders: Squared.  BBSquaredPPI used the emboss-resist technique.img_4335_edited-1 I did some heat embossing (one of my favorite techniques, using one of favorite tools)  and then watercolored in some different blue, greens and purples.  img_4338_edited-1I did some additional masking and added an ombré line of color along either side of the squares.img_4361_edited-1I stamped the sentiment and then attached the panel to a blue card base.

Some stamping, a little fussy cutting and some foam tape attaching the panel onto the dark blue card. I bought this fabulous dark blue cardstock at a great shop in my mother’s hometown of Dunoon, Scotland. I’d like to thank Valerie of Coleman Cards & Crafts for the excellent selection of lovely heavyweight cardstock that she keeps in stock.

A fun card for one of my nephews. I’m so excited to be moving back to Maine so that I’ll be close to them!

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
