TGIF- #tgifc06 Watercolor

It's Friday & that means time for a new TGIF Challenge!
This week it's all about WATERCOLORING!
This look is so trendy right now & I'm glad we get to play with it this week!


Funny thing before we start- I had my eyes dilated a couple hours before I started making this card & its the closest I'm coming to "Blindfolded Stamping". Sheesh!

I got to ink up a Brand New stamp set called "Best Thoughts" . I embossed the flower in gold & why I thought it would be a good idea to fussy cut with my eye situation I have no idea but nevertheless I powered through. Next I filled my aqua painter with 91% rubbing alcohol (Great tip shared by my sweet friend Connie Collins!). Then I kind of haphazardly water colored with Blackberry Bliss & Cucumber Crush. Mmmmm! I stamped the sentiments from Happy Birthday everyone & cut out the words to make a bit of a custom sentiment!

Well I hope you enjoy playing along with us this week & make sure you check out what the rest of the Team has created for you! 
Have an awesome weekend!

  5. Smart minds think alike! I started a card for this challenge using Best Thoughts, the SAME ink colour of Blackberry Bliss and I gold embossed it! I was looking a lot like my Artisan card for the FB blog hop so I stopped but giggled when I saw your's. Love what you have created.
