Paper Smooches SPARKS April Anything Goes (wk3) challenge

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week is another ANYTHING GOES challenge. EASIEST challenge EVER!
I created this card a couple of weeks ago... I was on the phone with my younger brother and decided to mess around with my Tsukineko Kaleidacolor ink pads. I used them to make a watercolor design and LOOOOOOOOOVED the result. 

The only problem is that I couldn't remember how I did it! LOL! I was talking with Carrel and crafting...and then all of a sudden realized that I needed to remember how I created my card! LOL! 

So I went online to find a card design that I could CASE--- I love this watercolor look so much that I wanted it to pop! I wasn't sure how to do that (this is my FIRST time working with "watercolors")....and sometimes I get stuck and need inspiration! I came across THIS layout by Wilna. She used paints but it was the exact look I was looking for! I CASED her page design using striped washi tape, splatters (made with my Imagine Crafts irRESISTible Tuxedo Black spray), and the white die cut over the design. LOOOOOOVE! ThanksWilna for sharing your creation and for inspiring me:) 
I used the Paper Smooches Simply Said and Happy Birthday sentiments along with the PS Birthday Words die cuts. LOOOOOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out! 
I kind of hate that I had to CASE Wilna's design-- I wish I would have thought of this myself! LOVE it! 

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love
And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details. This challenge ends April 26th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!!

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

This was your first time water colouring?!! WOW!!! It looks amazing, Sav!! The colours you chose to use work so well together! And the design is super awesome!!! You may have been inspired by Wilna's card, but this baby is all your own, all in your own style (which I am in awe of and inspire by daily!!!).
