Fab Friday Sketch Challenge: Happy Watercolor

Good morning!  What a crazy start to the week, after snow on Monday I woke up yesterday not feeling well.  I thought I could get up, work out and shake of the yuck feelings I had.  Instead I just kept getting worse and stayed home and preceded to sleep all day (I haven't done that since I can't remember), hopefully I start feeling better soon.  Thankfully I had already made my card for this weeks Fab Friday sketch challenge.  To help shake off the winter blues I decided to make a bright and springy card and the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper was the perfect inspiration for my color selections.  I started with a Smoky Slate cardbase and then added a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP that was matted on Gumball Green.  For the greeting I used the Happy Watercolor stamp set and used my Stampin' Write Markers to color in the stamp before stamping on Smoky Slate and cut it out with the Big Shot and the Chalk Talk Framelits.  I also added a little bow of Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon as an accent.
For all the little accents I decided to use butterflies and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die was perfect for making lots of little butterflies of different sizes in Smoky Slate, Tangerine Tango, and Daffodil Delight.  The final touch is one of the Mini Metallic clothespins for a whimsical touch.
This card is so bright and cheery, it'll definitely brighten someone's day.  I hope you enjoy!

Pin It!
