thank you for being you

Hi there!

Today I've been having some fun playing with watercolors and I used a fun technique I learned in the Clean + Simple 2 Online Card Class.

To create the background I started by embossing the Hero Arts Looped Flower image on watercolor paper. Then I added shades of blue and green watercolor paints and then before it dried I sprinkled it with salt!  That's how I got that awesome speckled texture!

Since I wanted the background to be the focus of the card, I just added a greeting from the Hero Arts Remember Your Kindness stamp set, a felt heart and a Martha Stewart doily.

(Thanks to Kristina for sharing this fun technique!)

Thanks for stopping by!
