Enjoy the Journey ....

Card number two for the evening, using various challenges for much needed inspiration,
 I started with “smooshing” again.  This time I used water colors both my opaque set using greens and blues.  Let that sit to air dry a bit.  Then I pulled out some scraps.  I found a piece of mint green card stock that I ran through my machine and a dotted folder.   I also found a small piece of mint green and gold dotted paper left over from a project long ago.  There was enough to edge the pieces together.   I cut the frame to fit the watercolor piece and then stamped the wild grass image.  The sentiment is Tim Holtz and I used my gold embossing powder that I just love.  Grabbing my ATG, I stuck it all together in layers and tied a white bow for grins.  All adhered to a white card base which I’m thinking of changing now that I look at it.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Less is More: Silhouette
Make my Monday:  New Stamp
Happy Little Stampers / CAS Challenge: Smooshing.

The silhouette looks lovely on your smooshed background. And I love the soft greens.

Beautiful effect with the smooshing and I love the mix of dots in the background and the vellum sentiment.
