Just Because

Today I have combined *smooshing (a Laura Bassen favorite of mine) - and the Peony Cover Plate from Papertrey Ink for this week's Color Throwdown.

I used Shabby Shutters distressed ink along with Papertrey Ink Melon Berry and Hibiscus Burst re-inkers and combined them onto my non-stick craft sheet and spritzed the whole schmozzle with water.

I used plain white card stock - basically because my water-colour paper is somewhere beneath the hordes of paper on my desk - to lay on top of the watercolours and it worked terrifically!

I paid specific attention to the placement of the colours so that I could use the Peony Cover Plate on top - which I did- hah!

I added the sentiment - from the Papertrey Ink Scripted stamp set - onto white card stock and popped it up.  Some beautiful gems finished it off!

Woohoo! - now to link up to The Color Throwdown!
