Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up Thinlits Thank You Card - Case Study #173


Do you like this card!?

I was completely inspired by the Case Study inspiration this week from Donna Mikasa (see her card below). I loved the cascading letters and the colours in her card. 

When I was thinking about my card design, I wanted to show that watercolours don't have to look conventional and "pretty"....I wanted to give them a graphic twist so they jumped off the card in a bold kinda way. :)

I did washes of colour onto watercolour paper using similar colours so they blended well. Then I used the 'thx' thinlit from the Stampin' Up! Circles Thinlit Dies to cut the sentiments. 

I flicked ink using my aqua painter to make my splattered background....I love a bit of splatter....it is SO satisfying to do!! 

I hope you like my card....it's a bit different. :)
