This is to Certify Happiness

Hello and Happy Sunday!  I hope your day is running smoothly.  Today, I needed a quick card so I had a play with watercolors, Strathmore 500 Series Ready Cut paper, dimensional die cuts and background stamps.

I literally put this card together in minutes using snippets of things I had in my stash.  I started with a watercolor smooshing technqiues using Arteza Real Brush Markers.  I stamped over the dried background with Bo Bunny and Indigo Blu texture stamps using distress inks.  I found floral dimensional ephemera I had stashed in a drawer and used a large one for the focal.  For the sentiment, I used 2 snippets from the Tim Holtz Clipping sentiment pack.  

The card is now tucked away in an envelope, ready to be posted tomorrow.  Sometimes, I work better under pressure!  

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
