watercolor challenge : pti 6th anniversary

i played along today with papertrey ink's watercolor challenge and created a colorful birthday card. i used lots of different sets on this one. i found that my ink didn't really spread that much after i stamped the image, so i had to dab my inkpad on the acrylic block, then pick that up with a wet paintbrush to apply to my card...but it's the same difference :) after the fact, i'm not sure about that scarlet jewel brush streak (i already have a wooden paintbrush streak stamp...had it for years). after i see the card in the photograph, it kind of looks like blood?! lol. i assure you, it's not.

well...i'm still waiting to see my name on the release winner's page...but i guess i can wait until it pops up for the winner of the "stamps for the whole year" prize! hehe that would be totally awesome! i would just die if that happened!

thanks for stopping by to look at my card. there's nothing good on tv tonight so i might have to make another card for the design team project favorites challenge...just a couple more days to enter that one. have a good night! xxo andrea.


  1. Love the color on your card, so cheery and happy!
    ...even I am yet to see my name on the winners page..fingers crossed for tomorrow!

  2. Oh, this card is too fun! I love the watercoloring look and the little bit of splattering. Awesome! I'm a new follower. :)
