Watercolor Spark

My life is getting back to a more manageable schedule (which really just means I have more time to stamp)!!

by karen @ carefree creations - Watercolor Background

I was inspired by the latest Paper Smooches Sparks Picture Perfect challenge.

I loved the array of colors and the water spots in the inspiration photo. I used those items to create the background for this card. As I watercolored each portion of the background, I added salt to help add pools and veins.

I kept the rest of the card quite simple.

The layout is also inspired by the photo – which has a large pale leaf on the right side – perfect placement for a sentiment.

Thanks for taking a peek!
