I Heart Art

Hi ya, all! Here is a card that I made for March Monthly challenge over at Inspiration Journal.


This month's challenge theme is A Splash of Color. Add anything colorful to your projects for a chance to win!


I first white embossed the sentiment from Paper Smooches I Heart Art set on watercolor paper, with the help from Tim Holtz Splatters stencil I added the perfect watercolor splashes to create the emboss resist look.


The paint brushes (also from I Heart Art set) were stamped in archival ink and colored with watercolor. With more watered down paint, the Splatters were added to the card base as well. Edited to add: My super sweet and talented friend Virginia is hosting a new challenge blog Virginia's View Challenge. The inaugural challenge is Watercoloring, since my card fits perfectly, I am going to link it up. Don't forget to check out the challenge here!

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to submit your colorful creations here for a chance to win 50 Emporium Dollars to use in the Inspiration Emporium Store! You can also use discount code wonderland at check out to receive 10% off your entire order when you shop at the Inspiration Emporium Store! =)
