Love to create with watercolors

Hi and welcome to the Quietfire Design blog today.  Today i have a card to share using mixed media paper and Tim Holtz inks and a new Die from A Way With Words called Celebrate.  It's such a great sentiment and i hope you like how it came out.

I haven't used Mixed Media paper in a while and wasn't sure how this would work but i really love how all the back round colors mixed together on it.  Doing watercolor back rounds can be so fun and you really never know how it will come out.  I guess that is the fun of it.
 On top of the watercolors i added a chipboard die cut to make it Lacey and pretty and then die cut the "Celebrate" die and also cut a back round for it in bright pink to make the sentiment stand out and also go with the cards matting.

Here are all the colors that i used for it.  I started with the 5 Distress inks and put a little on my mat and then spritzed it with water.  Then i pressed my precut paper into the colors until i got the effect that i wanted.  I used the Versa color ink in pink to go around the finished edges of the piece and also used the Gingerbread to make it pop.  The Lindy's moon shadow i spritzed on the top and that was neat because it blends in even more color to it. 

And for my Celebrate die piece i cut it with 120lb white cardstock and glued it on the pink paper and let it dry.  Then i carefully cut around the outside of the die and little places inside of it.  I think it would be better to use an exacto knife or maybe smaller scissors that are sharper.  Something to think about when you are cutting things out on your own.  But it's a good way to frame the dies.

Here is a supply list to make this project:
