WWC287 - Helen's Challenge: Anything Goes With A Feminine Twist

Hello, hello and welcome!  I can't believe it is September already.  This week at Watercooler Wednesday we are creating feminine cards and Helen is our hostess.  

I did a bit of loosed watercoloring with Nuvo Shimmer Powders.  I very loosely painted the wreath and then made a coordinating background by sopping up the leftover pigment with watercolor paper. The secret to the background is to layer the color, dry and repeat.  It is hard to tell in the photograph, but there is a beautiful shimmer to the card.  I had enough pigment left that I made a second background to use on a future card.

We would love to see your creation in our gallery.
