    Goodmorning all!

    Today is the day I can finally reveal that I am joining 
    the design team at AAA Birthday Card Challenges - YAY!
    I'm honored to work alongside a group of very talented ladies 
    and so super excited to begin this adventure. I'm still happy dancing!
    Thank you so much for this opportunity, Jane! 
    I couldn't wait to get started, so I created a card for Game #2 - use of watercolors

    I used Altenew Wallpaper art stamp set and I used the coordinating stencil set to help mask off the images. Since I was going to watercolor I stamped with Gina K amalgam ink.
    I first created a wash with Distress Oxide inks Spun suger, Picked raspberry and Seedless preserves. After drying the panel with my heat tool I added shadows to the images using water a couple of watercolor markers.
    The "happy" is from another Altenew set - Painted poppies - and "birthday wishes" is from Simon Says Stamp Tiny words.
    This is a very simple card for me, but I didn't want to take away from the subtle beauty of all the pink on those gorgeus flowers.

    I hope I have inspired you to get your watercolors out and join us for the June challenge - Use of watercolors

    Please stop by the AAA Birthday Blog to see the rest of our design team's creations. We also have 4 amazing guest designers joining us in June, so be sure to check out their gorgeus cards as well.

    Happy crafting and thank you for stopping by!
