Little Tangles Challenge #39- Watercolor

Hello! Today I'm back with the latest challenge over at Little Tangles. I thought it would be fun to create a challenge all about watercolor. It's all the rage right now so I decided to jump on the bandwagon...
I did a lot of "watercolor layering" on this card, which means I applied watercolor and let it dry and then added more on top. I continued to layer until I achieved the results I desired. I used Pumice Stone, Peacock Feathers and a very small amount of Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks with some water. After all the layers were completely dry, I went back in with a stencil, a blending tool , and some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to add the pattern.
To finish off the card, I punched several circles out of white cardstock, layered them together to create an embellishment and heat embossed the sentiment from THIS set with silver embossing powder. I also flicked on some Pewter Perfect Pearls to the card base for some shine.

I hope you can play along. Click HERE for more info. and to see the other design team member's awesome cards. Thanks for stopping by!
