Watercolor for Cardmakers- Day One

Hello! Today I have a card share just for fun. I recently signed up for the Watercolor for Card Makers Class over at Online Card Classes and as usual, it is full of inspiration. Today's card was inspired by the amazing Laura Bassen on the first day of classes. Here is my card...

In class, Laura showed us how to create a watercolor background using an acrylic block, some distress inks, and water. I wanted to do a bright rainbow pattern so I used Barn Door, Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. 

I wanted to keep the rest of the card super simple to keep focus on the fun background so I inlaid the love you die-cut into the background piece and added a few black hearts punched from cardstock. I also added a little shimmer to them with my Wink of Stella Pen...
If you want to get some inspiration or learn more about incorporating watercolor on your cards, check out the class info HERE.

I'll be back soon with another card I created with the leftover pieces from this card! Stay tuned...

You did a great job with this! I like the rainbow a lot.

Wait, is that paper under your card the wall paper that I also have, waiting to be shown some love? :)
