Pop of Pink

Hello and welcome back!  I've made a clean and simple card for the current sketch challenge at Global Design Project. 

I broke out my new Watercolor Pencils and grabbed a stencil to create the background for the main panel of watercolor paper.  I scribbled the pencil in the stencil shapes, then used a paintbrush and clear water to activate the watercolor properties of the pencil.  I LOVE the result!

After I pulled away the stencil, the irregularities around the edges give it that "watercolor" effect, then I took the damp paintbrush and drew some of the color into the spaces between.  Once the panel was completely dried I added a strip of washi tape from the Pop of Pink collection.  Then I decided a bit of metallic was called for so I used a stamp from Timeless Textures to add some Encore Gold splotches over and around the hearts.  I also added a bit of the beautiful Gold Baker's Twine along the washi tape and used it to make a bow attaching the tag.

Thanks so much for taking time to visit!  I've added a link above to the Global Design Project challenge, so be sure to head over there and enjoy all the amazing inspiration.

Those little watercolour hearts are adorable. The washi tape you've chosen looks great with it. This is a really sweet card.
