Hey Friend

Hi there!  Just popping in to share a card I made last night. I recently got some fun goodies from Paper Smooches and I finally got a moment to play with some of them.  Take a look...

I used the new set Curls & Swirls for this card.  I masked off the bottom of my card base and then I stamped (I almost used every stamp in the set for this!) my curls and swirls on watercolour paper and embossed in white.  Then I created a blended watercolour wash of four colours (red, orange, yellow and green) using my Spectrum Aqua markers and my broad waterbrush. Once this was dry, I added a strip of black houndstooth washi tape (Recollections) and stamped my sentiment (Paper Smooches, Calorie Free set) in black.  I love how easily the colours blended.

Well, I hope you are all having an awesome Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:
