You Color the World Card

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I'll be sharing four cards with you, all in separate posts through the day. All my posts are scheduled and will go live every full odd hour, from 3 PM to 9 PM. :o)

First for today is this You Color the World Card.

To make this card, I used a lovely paint brush image from Jane's Doodles 'Funny Bunny' stamp set and The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) 'From Us' stamp set for a sentiment.

I stamped 7 paint brushes on a watercolor paper panel and watercolored them using Distress Inks. Then I worked on Rainbow colors, also using Distress Inks. 

After drying, I loosely watercolored a background with Distress Ink Hickory Smoke mixed with a lot of water.

Next up was the sentiment. I cut stamps from the TAWS set to create my own sentiment, stamped it in the center of the panel and glued the panel on a white top folded card base.

As a finishing touch, I coated colors on brush tips and colors with a Clear Wink of Stella. Shimmery!! :o)
