Thanks So Much

Today I have a card I made for Power Poppy's Peep Of The Week Challenge.  Here is my card.
I tried a new technique for this card and I have to say I am having a ton of fun with it.  What technique you ask?  It is making your own watercolor background.  I have played around a few times in the past, but didn't like how they came out until now.  It is easy and fun! I started with wetting watercolor paper, then I smushed green watercolor paint around leaving some areas lighter and some darker.  There is not wrong way to do it.  I don't have a lot of patience waiting for the paper to dry so I hit it with my heat gun before splattering some green and purple watercolor paint.  After drying it again with a heat gun all I had to do was trim it to fit the card base.  I am happy with how it came out.  I now have several backgrounds on my desk waiting to be made into cards.  For the image I used my newest Power Poppy Set Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas Marcella Hawley is an amazing artist and I am a huge fan of hers.  If you have been to her store yet it is a must see.  I can guarantee you will find many sets you will need in your collection. 

Thank you for stopping by.


  1. Happy New Year Brenda! What a fabulous background you created with your technique.........I hate to think how mine would turn out....probably a mucky mess! Your pretty flowers are lovely to take a look at the store :)
