What a simple but beautiful card! I just love that gleaming gold die cut word on the sweet birdie journal card!

Congrats! Please email me via the email button on my side bar with your mailing info so I can pass it on to Simon Says Stamp!

Now on to today's card which was inspired by Day 1 of Online Card Classes Watercolor for Card Makers: Exploring Mediums... I noticed after I made it just how similar it looks to the class header. :)

For this card, I took a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and scribbled a rainbow of colour on it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before giving it a quick spritz of water using a Ranger Mini Mister. I was amazed by how quickly the colour spread and how vibrant the colour remained. Once dry, I adhered two layers of my hello sentiment die cut using Simon Says Stamp's Alphabet Blocks Dies. I then trimmed and matted my panel with Simon's Black Cardstock before adhering it to a Neenah Desert Storm Card that was stamped with Simon's Tiny Alphabet Background Stamp. Finally, I embellished the card with some sequins from Lucy Abram's gorgeous Shaker Selections.
