PS SPARKS - Cool Shades - Celebrate Big Time

Hello! It's time for a new challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!

This week it is a Cool Shades Challenge:

Here is the color palette - Fresh Fall:

I started off by masking off the square I wanted to use on watercolor paper with washi tape. It works perfectly, because it comes off easily afterwards without ruining the paper. Then I used 3 different colors of MFT ink, pressed them on my nonstick mat, then dipped a waterbrush in and blended together to make the background. I removed the washi tape, very carefully, while it was still wet so it didn't ruin my square shape.

Once that dried, I cut the city skyline using Super 2 Dies out of DCWV Glitter cardstock, and glued it directly on my watercolored square. I added the sentiment from Hullabaloo and Many Thanks to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Please stop by and see what the rest of the SPARKS team put together:
