Simply Amazing Watercolour Card!

Hello Crafty Friends!  It's Friday!  YAY!  We have a fun weekend ahead of us!  So thankful for sunny skies and the warmest day so far this Spring!  Yay for that!  Today I am popping in with a card I made for The Wonder of Watercolour challenge at Moxie Fab World!  I love watercolor and thought it would be fun to play with Hero Arts Looped Flower background! I stamped and heat embossed white powder the background onto some watercolor paper. I pulled out three Tattered Angels Spray Mist- Pink Poodle (light pink) Dutch Tulip (darker pink) and Thatched Roof Cottage (yellow) and sprayed away!  Because of the heavy watercolor paper I was able to spray a lot and play with it and spray more than once.  It was so fun!


I love how it turned out!  It blended so beautifully!  I decided to focus on the lovely backgound and just added a sentiment strip, love this little sentiment set from WPlus9 Design Studio I Quite Like You! Also added some enamel dots! It's also quite sparkly you can sorta see it in this photo:


I am also entering this card into Simon Says Stamp Challenge since it's Anything Goes!

This week was a great week full of family fun!  Tuesday Carter was invited to a glow bowling party, since he's still little and it involved bowling balls I stayed!  Chad and Ariel showed up early to pick us up (which was fine) they bowled too!  We all had so much fun bowling!  I think Carter is finally trustable with a bowling ball!  Yay!  Carter is so excited it's only recently that his friends have started having just boy birthday parties.  After asking Ariel for a long time Can I come too ? To the parties she was invited to he gets to go to a party that she can't come too, and he really likes to tell her about that!  LOL  He has one next Sunday too at Petland and Ariel is quite jealous! Took a trip to Ikea on Wednesday and the kids love going in the Smalland there, they ask for it!  Thursday Chad and I worked in the morning and since both kids were in school we had an afternoon date and went to see Oblivion.  Next time before Chad quickly buys tickets for a movie I won't say yes because Tom Cruise is in it!  Not the biggest Sci-Fi fan over here.  I went for a few walks around the theatre, I closed my eyes and plugged my ears and told Chad sorry but I am playing with the iphone there is hardly anyone here and I can't focus on this movie!  (I did hide the phone under the jacket so it wasn't that glaring) I like suspense movies but future suspense movies scare me!  Very much so!  Oh well it was a good movie.  And hopefully all the random questions I've been asking Chad about the movie is enough to remind him not to bring me to a movie like that again!

That's it for me!  Hope you have a weekend to remember!
