Sunshines and Smiles

Hello again . . . I am back today with another catch up card from last week for Week 1, Day 2 of Summer Card Camp 2. I was inspired to try watercolor stripes by Shari Carroll. She is a fabulous artist. I had to substitute distress inks for gelatos (as I only have 4 and they weren't the right colours); however, I am very happy with how this turned out using the same technique. I used a heavy water color paper with the heavy texture side up. **The hearts in the picture look really intense orange and red, however, they are actually a deeper shade of pink and a slightly less intense orange.

I will be back with a full supply list later . . . my goal was to get both cards I made today posted, so I can get back to work.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes

Created with Love - anything goes
