Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #23 - New Technique

Hi friends!! I am popping in today to share with you my entry for the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge which is to try a new technique you've never tried before - I have two that I incorporated onto my card.  I tried creating a watercolor wash ombre' background and adding shimmer splatter with Perfect Pearls.  Two seem to be easy, but it isn't usually my go to look and I actually love the way this card turned out!

I started out my card by taking a piece of watercolor paper and used some liquid watercolors and I created a purple into light purple ombre background.  Once my background was dry, I took some Perfect Pearls pigment powder in Perfect Pearl, and added a bit of water and created a small puddle of liquid shimmer and did a light splatter over the background.  And, once you hold up the card, you will see the shimmer catch the light.  It is very pretty.  

Next, I cut down my background using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangles die, and used the next to largest one in the set.  I, then chose some rainbow patterned paper from the new Really Rainbow 6x6 and created a scalloped pierced frame with an Avery Elle die set I have.  Next, I die cut some watercolor scraps I had in my stash, and used the Little Flowers die set, and created my pot of flowers, and the rainbow frame was the inspiration for bringing all of the colors together.  To create a grounding for my pot of flowers, I took a scrap piece of green cardstock, and added that to the back of my frame.  For my sentiment, I stamped the Sending Hugs sentiment from the new Simply Sentiments stamp set and stamped it out using LF Jet Black Ink.  Once I had all of my elements together, I used liquid adhesive to adhere them to my card, and for a final touch, I added white highlights to the pot, the flowers, and a faux stitched edge to the green "grounding" piece, and added it to a A2 size white card base.

Super Cheery and happy!!  Hope it brings a smile to your face today!!  

See you soon!
