Colorful Watercolors!

Even though Virginia's View Challenge#1 is over, I am still obsessed with playing with watercolors...
The latest Avery Elle Challenge is calling my name again :)
Challenge 4
I decided to create a very colorful card and let watercolors be the STAR! So, I took out my one and only handy dandy 4" x6"AE stamp set To the Point
so sweet
Well, I went all out on the colors! These colors just make me happy, happy, happy....

About this card:  
~mask and emboss the sentiment in gold and arrows in white
~color the small arrows in Distress Inks and water
~flick the water brush pen to create tiny splatters
~use fine pens to add a colorful border for faux stitching
~color the white strings with Distress Inks to match the arrows
~swipe the Distress Inks (with a few spritz of water) along the edges of the white card stock 
Thanks for stopping by!
