Challenge: watercolor

Just in time to do my last challenge at Winnie and Walter! Didn't manage to do them al :(, but at least I did a couple of them.

This time I did the watercolor challenge from Vanessa. I made two cards with the same watercolor piece I made so I'll just add both of the cards to this post. I watercolored my background with distress inks on watercolor paper. After it dried I used a die from My Favorite Things to cut out the frame. I also die cut a piece of white cardstock with the same die and I randomly added pieces of white and colored cardstock onto my card. This took me some time but I managed to make two backgrounds at the same time because I adhered all the pieces I took out of the white cardstock into the watercolor cardstock and vice versa. 

For this first card I used another diecut piece of white cardstock to adhere on the top and bottom of my card (the dimension of the Dutch cards is a little bit different than the dies from MFT so I had to cover up some edges. I stamped the 'Thinking of you' sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp) and added some sequins to finish my card.

For my second card I used the other background I created with my dies. Here I added a piece of stamped white cardstock too but this time I only added it to the bottom (I adhered the background a bit higher onto my card). To give it a little more interest I added a small strip of glitter paper to the bottom of the card. No sequins this time ;).
