Watercolor with Sprays and Ink Dauber

Hey there!
This was one of the cards I made for the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop but I didn't think it was good enough to post (LOL)...but I changed my mind and I am sharing it today :) 
so very thankful
~Emboss the sentiment G6070 Thankful in Hero Arts white Embossing Powder
~Use a paint brush, water, Hero Arts Sprays and Ink Dauber to create a watercolor background
~Emboss the heart banner image from CL845 Papel Picardo Banners in silver

Time to post a food photo, too! 
A DIY Sushi Roll I made last Saturday. The fillings are store-bought salmon, pickled ginger, eggs and avocado. For the rice: I mixed the rice vinegar with some sugar (rice has to be hot). Glad that I took the photos because they were gone in 10 minutes!
 And that's how I roll.
Thanks for stopping by!
