Your Time To Shine... A little Watercoloring

Hello!  I recently got my hands on some of the Tim Holtz watercolor paper and just had to bust it out... that and I was itching to do something for fun, so when I saw a few watercoloring challenges I knew it was meant to be...

Stamps: Mama Elephant
Distress Inks
Water brushes
Patterned Paper: American Crafts

I actually water colored the circles first in various yellow and orage distress inks and stamped the images and sentiment once it was dry.  I then adhered it to a layer of vellum and popped them both up with foam adhesive.

This card was based on the Mama Elephant Challenge: Watercolor + Birthdays and the AAA Cards Challenge: Watercolor
And in the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge
And finally in the Allsorts Challenge: Favorite things as Mama Elephant Stamps are one of my favorites to play with!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
