Poppystamps Challenge: Splish Splash

It's a new month and that means a new Poppystamps Challenge!  This month the theme is Splish Splash!  What does that mean exactly?  Think watercolors inspired by April showers!

For this card, I started by watercoloring an ombre background with a brush and regular watercolors.  Then I went back over it with some water color powders.  After it was completely dry, I die cut it with the large Spinning Circles die.  Then I inlaid the die cut pieces back in the background but changed the position of the pieces to create some movement.  Here's a closer look at it...

The last step was to add some clear sequins and a metallic silver die cut sentiment.  So are you still loving watercolors as much as I am? I hope you are and I hope you join in the challenge!  
Have a great weekend!



  1. It's a fabulous project, JJ! Just love the idea of turning the wheel to shift colors!

  2. Gorgeous! Love how the silver pops against the fabulous background you created!

  3. Don't know how I missed this post ~ Such a creative design, JJ! I love the ombre effect of your watercolors, and how the powders add so much texture! Very cool idea to turn the wheel, too! You are AMAZING!!!


I'd love to hear from you! Aloha!
