Daisy, Daisy

Hello friends.  A couple really simple cards to share with you today using a new (to me) technique that I found over on Loll Thompson's blog, called Splash Watercolour Technique.  SOOO've gotta check it out!!  I thought I did something wrong after I did the first color, but once it dried, I could see all the beautiful spots that look speckled, and then of course after adding the 2nd color and then letting that dry...WOW!  Can't wait to do it again with other colors!!  Take a look:

I used Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks for the that not cool looking or what?!!  (can you tell I'm just a little bit excited about this technique????)  I used a Penny Black die for the Daisy called Bashful, and colored it with my Copics.  My sentiments for both cards are from PTI's Winter Woods set.  Here's a photo of both cards:

Don't they both make you think Spring really is just around the corner??  I'm going to add this to the CAS Mix Up challenge for March, as it has stamping (the sentiments), water coloring (the background), and 1 other element (the die cut Daisy).

Lots of beautiful cards in the gallery, so if you need any inspiration, it's a great place to go looking!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
