Looks like Granny's wallpaper!

I really loved Betsy's watercolor technique this week. I finished and didn't want to cover it up with a sentiment! It reminds me of an old fashioned wallpaper. 


I used Delightful Dahlias, stamping all three parts, and then using my Aquapainter to blend them. I used a piece of Sweet Blush for my card base and added just a skinny strip of ribbon. 

Love to watercolor, so I will use this technique again!!

Thanks for looking!
Luanne

I think this is one of my favorites of the bunch I have looked at today. This is a piece of ART! I don't think I would have wanted to cover up any of it with a sentiment either!! Stunning!

I missed this card the first time and am so glad that you're sharing it again for PTI's anniversary. It is absolutely stunning. Did you take a little extra time before sending it out just so you could stare at it?
