Thanks Card ft Honey Bee & Mission Watercolors

Happy Saturday, friends!

I never thought it would take me so much time to make a new card, but here I am almost a month later with a new project to share with you. I so wish there were more than 24h in a day!

A couple of weeks ago I posted on my Instagram that I purchased the Mijello Mission Gold watercolors and I finally got the chance to play with them. If you watch the video below you will see how I made my pallette and the color swatches and if you have these watercolors and wish to make a swatch like mine, you can download the file here Mijello Swatch and print it on your watercolor cardstock or just regular paper and then trace it onto your watercolor paper. For the time I got to play with these watercolors, I can say that I already love them, the colors are so vibrant and mix perfectly with eachother !

Now for my card, I used a stamp set from the new Honey Bee release, called Zen Bouquet and created my own background by stamping the various flowers and leaves from this set. I stamped all my images with the Versafine Onyx Black ink that is perfect for watercoloring. Once the colors were dry, I added some white splatters with the Picket Fence Distress Paint. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the Thanks sentiment onto a piece of vellum and used my scissors to trim all around it

I then used a wreath die from an older set by Studio Calico and cut my wreath from gold mirror cardstock leftover that I found in my stash. Because I wanted a bit more of that gold, I also added a gold string and some gold glitter enamel dots with the Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
