It's Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge

A Guid New Year tae ane an awe
And mony may we see!
( A wee bit of Scotland coming out here)

Hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas
and now we move on to 2018.

The first Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers is our
Anything Goes Watercolour Challenge
(and I'm part of the New Look Team)
with the Optional Twist to use Sequins.
I'm sure we all have lots of little containers
full of these little treasures.
My watercolour background effect was the result of
spritzing water on to my craft mat after I added
Tim's Oxide Inks in Mermaid Lagoon & Salty Ocean
then spread with an acetate sheet.
The feature of my card is of course the feather
which is a stencil by TCW. I added texture paste
and once dry inked with Mermaid Lagoon.
It needed a little something so I put my stencil
back over the feather and versamarked it
then heat embossed the glitter.
Added some tiny text for interest.
Sentiment is from HLS Thinking of You
which unfortunately is retired.
Finished with HLS Blue Sequins and
a few gems and cut with a stitched die
adhering to metallic card stock.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop!

How good is THAT!
