Watercolor Thank You

It's Wednesday, which means I get to show you another card I've made for my turn in the Designer Spotlight at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week the challenge is all about Watercoloring. I don't actually own any watercolors (shhhhh...) so I decided to see if I could adapt this fab technique I spotted on the WPlus9 blog recently and make a bokeh background watercolored with my Memento inks. 

This is SUPER easy to do - smoosh your IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko ink pad(s) on acrylic surface to pool ink (I no joke used packing from some dies), then use like watercolors! YAY!!! Once dry, I sponged Memento LUXE ink using a circle stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.

I finished the card with a fantastic sentiment from the winnie + walter set called Big Bold You. It might be my all-time favorite font EVER, truly. Oh, and I felt compelled to add enamel dots, because everything is better with dots!

This is a great example of a card to make and keep on hand for times when you need a card and you need one now. Thank you for the good idea, Taylor. :-)
