A Watercolor Ikat Card

Good evening! Just popping by to share a card for a couple of challenges! I had fun trying to create a watercolor effect with the ikat image from the Unity March 2013 KOTM. I sprayed some different colors of Heidi Swapp Color Shine on a non-stick mat, inked up my stamp on that, then stamped on watercolor paper. After that dried, I stamped my sentiment over the top with Versamark ink.


I also used some distress ink, some Crate Paper pattern paper, a little black jute twine, a window cut with my Lil' Inker's Stitched rectangles, and a few sequins.

I am linking this up with a few challenges - first up, the Runway Inspired Challenge. Here is the inspiration photo - I pulled the colors and angles out of it:


The brand new Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World - LOVE the colors of those leaves:


And then the current Inspired By Challenge - the  colors and contrast were so fun:


Thanks for stopping by - and have a wonderful evening!!!
