Make-It-Monday #77

I know this was from a couple weeks ago but I still wanted to post what I made. I had a lot of fun with this technique and felt quite artsy. The challenge was to use your ink pads as watercolors. Here's the link to the post with the video on Nichole Heady's blog.

You can see a little better in the photo below where I stamped the wreath from Wreath For All Seasons (Papertrey Ink) and then used my Sweet Blush ink pad to color over it rather loosely. I then stamped a few berries and flowers over top the wreath in a dark pink and a green (the dark pink berries are rather hard to see, especially in the picture but they're there.)

The sentiment is stamped in Strawberry (Fresh Ink) on a double ended banner die (PTI). The PP is from MME.

Thanks for visiting. Make it a great week.

What a cute card Jennifer. I love that you used the wreath with watercolors. I wouldn't have thought of that. Love it.

How cute is this??! I love your cheerful paper mix with the freeform feeling of your watercolouring! What a happy and artful card!
