How did I achieve this watercolored look? I spritzed watercolored paper with water and used a Waterbrush and my CTMH inkpads. With the lids closed I squeezed the top onto the inkpad to make a small pool of ink on the lid. From left to right on my card are Topiary, Sweet Leaf and Sky inks. The greeting was cut from the watercolored paper with the Artiste cartridge (page 65 accent 1) at 1.25". Before I cut it out I experimented with a piece of scrap CS so I could center it the way I wanted. (From the landscape orientation on my cricut machine I moved the cutting dial down .25" and 1.25" to the left). The top layer was raised with 3D Foam Tape.
After I photographed this card I decided to embellish it with some flowers and sparkles. I'm not really sure which I like better. I would love to read your preference in the comments below.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Hiding in My Craft Room--spring colors
Cut It Up--green for St. Patrick's Day or spring
