Messy Background







Today's Challenge at Make My Monday was chosen by Sian and was way out of my comfort zone, so a bit of a challenge. I used watercolour pens to create the background and actually enjoyed splashing on and overlapping the prime colours, creating a few other shades in the process. A Thank You stamp and a few sequins and I was finished.


 Pop over to the Challenge Blog for some inspiration and see the fabulous makes there.

Lots of color, sequins and a sentiment, so little is needed to make an impressive design. A different style and technique for you, but you nailed it! I love this card.
