AAA Card Challenge Game #66 - Guest Design

IMG_0216


So happy to share with you today that I am the Guest Designer for the AAA Cards Challenge Game #66!


The theme of the game this time is one of my favourites--watercolours! Just recently I purchased some Magenta watercolour powders and used them for my panel. I used the Raspberry and Turquoise powders, after my panel was almost dry I added some water droplets and then sprinkled with some rock salt. Once dry I shook off the rock salt, stamped my sentiment and adhered the panel with foam tape to my white card case. Finished it off with a white die cut butterfly and some sparkle clear sequins.

We hope to see you play along you have from June 5th - 18th to play along.

Hi Tracey. It's wonderful to have you guesting with us this week! Your card is gorgeous. I am loving watercolor powders too these days. The shades you have chosen for your watercolored panel are gorgeous together - so deep and rich. I have never heard the rock salt tip. I am going to try that today. Thanks for this wonderful inspiration and for joining our DT for this challenge. Your work is always a joy to behold.
