W is for Watercolour

 It's a New challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!!!

What a gorgeous water coloured background Edna has made for herself.

Hello friends, family and followers, W is for Watercolour, well it's not my forte' I have lots of equipment, tombow markers, watercolour pencils, twinking H20s, and many other things that could be used on the watercolour techniques. Today I made a color burst background, I have never had any luck using it but with time closing in on me to get the card done I had to go with it. 

I have tried using color burst many times and this was the best I have ever done with it, I had many inky paper towels and very inky fingers. I didn't want to cover up my work so went with a very large Happy Birthday which I cut 4 of and glued them together for some dimension, it certainly was not easy as this is a very fine die cut. I'm sure I'm still sporting glue. Now if I had remembered to bring my wide double sided tape it would have been much easier. 

Since I made a pretty card I had to add a slightly snarky sentiment.

Since I finished this in the early evening there was no lake setting and I'm not really a person to "stage" my cards but I wanted to show the three colours of color burst I used.

I'm adding this to:

Seize the Birthday ~~  Anything goes

thanks for stopping by today and head over to the MAIN BLOG and check out the watercolour inspiration the rest of the design team have made.

Sometimes when I watercolour, I like how the paper towel turns out more than I like the good copy. :D But this background looks great! Lots of purple awesomeness here!
