Papertrey Ink | Make It Monday #77

This week's Make It Monday challenge is to use ink pads as watercolors. I am always hesitant to use watercolors on my projects.... I am not an artist! But this challenge didn't look too difficult. I used Papertrey Ink's In Bloom and Tagged Sentiments to create this card.

(Supplies - Stamps: In Bloom and Tagged Sentiments (PTI). Ink: True Black, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse (PTI). Cardstock: Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse, White (PTI). Dies: Limiless Layers Circles, Small Scallop Border, Eyelet Lace Border (PTI). Patterned Paper: Simply Chartreuse Patterns Pack. Other: Gems)

I don't think I'll quite my day job and become a full time painter, but this challenge did force me outside my comfort zone. I haven't inked up In Bloom in a while, either.

Have a wonderful afternoon!

You never know, if your card is an indication of your watercolor talents, the day job thing might be history! By the way, great layout!

Wow your card is beautiful! I love the colours you've chosen and the balance you created. The circular sentiment was a fabulous choice!
