Celebrate - Peach and Mint

 Good Monday morning! I can't help it - I have another watercolor card to share with you today:

I was super excited when I saw the new Little Tangles challenge - Peach and Mint - one of my FAVORITE color combos ever:
And the newest Inspired By Challenge was a perfect compliment:

I decided to make another video to share the technique I used to make this card - I kind of came across the idea by accident, and made one card, then made another one on the video. I like how the one on the video came out better - but I'll show you the other one at the bottom of this post, and you can let me know what you think! Here is my video:


Here is the close up view of my card. The stamp set I used from Neat and Tangled is Just for You. And I added Mint Satin Sequins as well. 

This photo shows a little better the Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents: is the original card I made - I started off by not stamping off the balloons one time - and in the video I decided to stamp them off so that I had a softer line on the finished balloon after filling it in with the watercolor. I liked it MUCH better - but would love to hear what you think!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful beginning of your week!!!
