Many Thanks

i’m playing along with the Essentials by Ellen February Pin-Sights Challenge and this month’s inspiration is an aqua mood board:

my card was inspired by the ice cream cones; i wonder what aqua tastes like.

the swirled texture made me think of stripes so i painted twinkling H2O stripes on cold pressed watercolour paper and painted opposite stripes on the many thanks die cut sentiment which was layered three times. i also liked the swirls of the die cut bold blossoms, which i painted to match and covered them in glitter. to finish off, i added pearls from the 28 Lilac Lane Party On embellishment kit and attached some gold mini prills.

thanks for popping by.
