Hi friends! Today our magnificent and fearless leader Nance is hostess at The Paper Players, and she has a lovely jewel tone color combo for us. I actually made two cards using these colors and you'll see the other one next week.
For today's card, I did my best to match the colors to my Copic markers and Distress Inks, though my colors are a little more vibrant. I've seen so many pretty watercolor wash backgrounds and thought I would give the technique a try. A couple of You Tube videos later, this is what I came up with. I think I like it :)
I'm also playing along with the challenge at Seize the Birthday, which is Bees, Birds & Butterflies, and the 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker.
Here is my birthday sentiment on the inside.
