Stamping With Watercolours

I created this card with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours,
Elle-ments Wonky Stitches, Elle-ments Thank You, My Favourite
Things Bold Diagonal Stripes Background stamp, Pretty Pink
Posh Sparkling Clear sequins in 8, 6 and 4mm and Bazzill cardstock.

I started by created the background.  I painted directly onto the
 stamp and then laid the watercolour card on to the stamp.  I set
 this piece aside to dry.  I die cut the word die 3 times and 
adhered them together.  I created the card blank and stamped
 another sentiment inside.  I then die cut the watercolour piece,
 added craft foam behind it and then assembled the card.

Make a Wish Birthday Card

This card was created with The Crafters Workshop 
Mini Tiny Circles stencil, My Favourite Things 
Brushstroke Birthday Greetings and Pierced Circle
Stax.  The Distress Inks used were Picked Raspberry,
Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar.  I also used Bazzill
cardstock and Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

I started by inking through the stencil with the distress inks.  I
then die cut the greeting and the pierced circle.  I adhered the
die cut words to the vellum circle and then fixed it to the inked
panel.  I added a piece of foam behind this panel and adhered it 
to my card base.  I finished with a scattering of sequins.

largest die from the Blueprints 21.  I wrapped twine around the
striped layer and then adhered my other elements using foam
tape.  Finally I added a few enamel dots.

I also made a male version using chalk ink and different
