Bring on the Sun

Happy Monday, my friends! Here is a card that I made for The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.


I drew circles using Inktense Blocks on the piece of watercolor paper then went over them with a water brush to get the background. This is actually a test piece that I used to try out this technique for another project that I was working on. I couldn't bare to ditch it afterwards, so here it is. =)


Because of the colors I used, I thought the sentiment from Technique Tuesday's Bring on the Sun set was a perfect fit. The hearts are cut out from thin birch wood then colored with a red Copic marker.

That's all I have. There is still time to enter for The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge, see the details here! =)

Have a sunshiny day and thanks for stopping by!
