Sparkle & Shine Challenge: Watercolor Dots

*second post of the day. for the winnie & walter rerun, please go here*

Hello everybody! It's time for a new Sparkle & Shine Challenge. This time we had this pretty image to work with:

So many possibilities, don't you think? I love the watercolors and here is what I came up with:

I created the stripes on a panel of watercolor paper, using a wet brush to pick up color from Derwent Inktense Pencils and simply painting a stripe of every color, creating a rainbow. Then I trimmed the panel, layered it with a strip of black card stock and adhered it to my card base. I stamped and colored the cute panda, cut it out and adhered it with foam tape. Then I die-cut the word from card stock and fun foam and adhered it, too. Finally I added matching sequins.

I hope you'll join us this time for your chance to win a gift card to Pretty Pink Posh!

Thanks for stopping by!

Did you put the Inkense directly onto the paper and them waterbrush it or pick up the color from the pencil lead and then paint? I have a hard time getting rid of Inktense "line" marks. Thanks for sharing all your lovely and inspiring work!

Gorgeous color choices! LOVE that you had matching sequins in each color! Super-cute way to have the panda holding the die sentiment! :)
