Fall Watercolor

Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a card inspired by the new challenge.  I only used one Memory Box die on this card, but it is so lovely it can stand on it's own.

I cut the oval center out with the main Memory Box Country Fence Oval Frame die. I colored the die cut with distress inks, trying to use more muted greens so the grass didn't look too spring-like. I set the die cut aside to dry, and took another piece of white card stock and created a background.

I misted the background paper using Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist. It has a lovely sheen to it. Then, I sprinkled the new Ken Oliver Color Bursts over the damp paper. The colors spread and blend together so nicely. It's also a lot of fun to do. The background looks like an impressionist or maybe pointalist painting.

Finally, I glued the die cut to the background and positioned the white oval frame around the die. I then took the whole project and mounted it onto a light blue A2 sized card.
