Watercolour Celebrate Card

My friend's daughter got engaged recently so I've made a Watercolour Celebrate card to send to her and her fiancĂ©.  I really like the look of watercolouring on cards and I am keen to start learning how so I have been watching videos by some of my favourite bloggers and thought I would give it a go.  I don't have any watercolours yet (they are on my Amazon Wish List...can I wait until Christmas?!!!) so I used some Stampin' Up! ink pads and an Aqua Painter to make this card.....

WPlus 9 Unforgettable Watercolour Card
The ink pads I used were Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Marina Mist.  I heat embossed the sentiment in black using MFT Brushstroke Birthday and then stamped and coloured in the elephants and balloon using Copic Markers using WPlus9 Unforgettable stamps and matching dies.  I added some Wink of Stella to the balloon although it doesn't show up in the photo.

 I'm really pleased with how this card turned out so I can see I shall be splashing around with inks and water for some time now!!!

Have a great weekend.  It's mine and my friend's birthday tomorrow.  I've asked my hubby for a crafting tool I have had my eye on for a while now so when it arrives I shall share my first make with you (even if it's a disaster!).
