AAA Card Challenge #10

It's AAA Card Challenge time. This week is all about using Water Coloring!

 This is such a hot trend right now, and there are so many different ways to water color.  For today's card, I inked up my embossing folder and heavily spritzed it with water.  I die cut the MFT Balloons, sponged them and spritzed them too.  Yeah, all of a 10 minute card :).  Gotta love that!  My Happy Birthday is STAMPlorations, Happy.

Feel free to use any water color technique you want, we just want to see water coloring.  We hope you play along!  See ya over at the AAA Card Challenge.

NOTE: The comment winner from my blog is...........MYRNA SWEET!  Congrats.


Thanks for stopping by~

WOW, this looks great, Vicki!!!! Your watercoloured and embossed bg is beautiful and I love the effect of the spritzing on the sponged balloons as well!! The little black dots on the balloons is so much fun and go so nicely with the black twine. The sentiment is perfect!!! Lovely card!!!

I tried using the water-colour technique with this folder, and my results were a slop-fest mess! Yours is the complete opposite: eye-catching, lovely and sooooo pretty! I may have to return to the drawing board for one. more. try! Thanks for the inspiration!

I've had good results using the embossing folder watercolor painting - until I used this ef. Mine ended up in the recycle bin. Yours came out beautifully, so I'll try it again. Love the balloons over the top.
