I'm such a huge fan of watercolor washes. I'm also a HUGE fan of this years In Colors, I mean in case you haven't figured it out. I seem to grab Peekaboo Peach for almost every single card now. When I'm not grabbing that color I'm reaching for Sweet Sugarplum. I can't get enough of these colors! I decided to pair them with Flirty Flamingo and make a fun watercolor wash for my birthday greeting.
It was really easy! I started with some watercolor cardstock I got it wet with a big flat brush and and clean water, then I picked up the color on my brush and added it to the already damp cardstock. Since the paper is already wet the color moves and blends on it's own. I added Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo and then Peekaboo Peach. Then I just put it aside to dry. Once dry I embossed the greeting in white and die cut it with our new Stitched Shapes framelits, added some stars and banners and the card was done!
