Watercolor on Shimmery White

Have I mentioned that I love watercolor?  This is such a fun card to make.  Endless combos possible.

Start with a base card of Whisper White Thick, my favorite base layer now!  Cut a panel from Shimmery White Card Stock.  Shimmery White is great for watercolor and offers the shimmer and a little contrast to the stark white of the base.

I used my Aquapainter to add the watercolor wash, I think I used Pacific Point and added just a touch of Blushing Bride.  Then with my fingers I flicked some water to get the water spots.  Then used the Gold Wink of Stella to splatter the card a little with just a little more shimmer.

I stamped the thank you greeting from One Big Meaning in Memento Tuxedo Black.

The leaf is cut from a scrap of Basic Black using the Flourish Thinlits. I only put glue on the spine of the leaf and I lifted the edges a bit off the card for some dimension.

The finishing touch are some sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment

I'll be using this basic layout for many more cards!  I think a happy birthday one is in order.
