LDRS - Fun Watercolor Painted Card with Product Spotlight Video

Hi everyone!  I'm here with you today to share a super cheery, bright, and fun card using the delightful and oh so adorable Everything Stops for Walkies image. This image was perfect for combining my love of coloring and water coloring onto a card to create a scene.  I loved water coloring the background and I also painted the beautiful image.  Who wouldn't love to go walking with that cute little puppy? :)

I have a quick video showcasing some of the great products used on this card:

To create this card, I used the adorable Everything Stops for Walkies Stamp Set and then I water colored the image with my Zig Markers and a water brush. I also created the fun watercolor background with watercolor paints and I added some shimmer paint to the top for some extra shine.  I used the Splended Azure 6x6 Paper Pad for my design papers.  This paper is so gorgeous, I can't get enough of it.  I love the beautiful,  rich colors and the color scheme.  I used the Splendid Azure Cut Outs to stamp my sentiment onto and then I embossed my sentiment with some black embossing powder so it would really stand out.  Finally, I used the absolutely gorgeous Dotted Wings Die Set to create the beautiful butterflies in the top left corner. 

I just love the richness of the design paper and it was so fun finding watercolors to match the papers.  Here is a close-up of the gorgeous butterfly die:

I added some silver glitter paper to the butterflies I put on top to give some extra shimmer and sparkle. 

Here's another look at the Splendid Azure Cut Outs with the sentiment stamped right on.  I just love how these coordinate perfectly with the design paper. 

I had a slightly difficult time capturing all the shimmer I put onto the background with some shimmer paint.  This next photo is not the greatest, but I wanted the fun shimmer to show through.

If you click on this picture to make it bigger, you can really see the shimmer and shine :)

I really hope you enjoyed my card for today.  Don't forget, you don't have to be good at water coloring to create a fun, abstract background scene on your card.  It's so fun to do and I think it comes out looking really sweet.  While you're here, don't forget to check out the Clearance Section at the shop to find some amazing deals.
