Watercolored Skies with Audrey!

Hey there!  Audrey here!  Today I have a card to share with you using one of my favorite things... watercolor!  I am slightly addicted to this trend and I hope that it never goes away!

I started off my watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper with my Artist's Loft watercolor palette from Michaels.  I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds border dies to add clouds to the bottom edge of my scene.  I cut one out of vellum and another out of white cardstock, which I popped up using foam tape.  Wplus9 recently released the most adorable hot air balloon set called Going Places.  There are several little critters that you can put in the balloon, and of course, I chose my favorite, the little cat.  I stamped and diecut the balloon and clouds with the coordinating Going Places dies, then colored them with copic markers.  To add some interest to the balloon, I paper pieced the center panel with a fun rainbow chevron pattern from the Avery Elle Everyday Colleciton 6x6 paper pad.  After everything was adhered, I stamped a sentiment from the WPlus9 Wishing You stamp set.  Finally, I added some sequins that I sorted out of the Lucy's Cards Lily White sequin mix.  I love these sequin mixes because they have fun shapes in addition to the sequins, like the iridescent stars that I used on my card.

Wishing You
