To think of you is to smile, SUO Challenge, Watercolor Fun

Woohoo, love the theme for this weeks Challenge. You know, you can play along too: http://suochallenges.com/

My inspiration for this card came from Kimberly Van Diepen. I love ALL her stuff.  This was perfect for an “out of the box” kind of card and different than how you would normally use this set.  You will notice that I didn’t center the top layer onto the card base. I wanted part of another Metallic Doily to stick out on the side.

I first stamped the “flowers” with Black Archival Ink (so it won’t smear), onto Watercolor Paper, then watercolored each one with Lemon Lime Twist & Tranquil Tide and an Aqua Brush. I squished the ink pad to get the ink on the lid.  Then I splattered some Gold & Clear Wink of Stella. When everything was dry I die cut with the Eastern Medallion Thinlit. Used Fast Fuse to adhere to my card.

This sentiment is my favorite. I am sending these cards to my customers, because, yes they do make me smile! I used the Layering Circles for the Scalloped Circle in Lemon Lime Twist. The Small Gold Doily goes behind the sentiment die cut with the Stitched Shaped Framelits, (that was watercolored with Lemon Lime Twist) then that piece goes on the Lemon Lime Twist Scalloped Circle. Add Dimensionals to the back and add it to your card.

To finish off my card, I spattered some Lemon Lime Twist & Tranquil Tide using the markers. Just use your lid to do the spattering, same with the Wink of Stella. Its easy, you should try it!
