The 25th...already? I always try to play along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hops. This month we're to experiment with our backgrounds and use this as our inspiration:
I used the Linen Impression Plate on the base panel. All the watercoloring is done with Peerless. Those are amazing little things, aren't they? Thanks to Joan B that gifted me a bunch. I can't believe how much vibrant color is infused in those papers. I used wood veneer paper on the Party Time Die. I decided to back it with Papertrey Ink Vellum so that the intricate cuts wouldn't get lost in the background.
Here's a close up of my card...you can faintly make out the linen texture:
I need to put my girl to work more often. I tend to think to much when I do larger freeform watercoloring and she just went for it.
Here are the Papertrey Ink products I used today:

Can't wait to see all the inspiration in this month's hop!
I've been scurrying around to get things done before leaving to see the boy tomorrow. The girl and I are super excited to give him huge hugs.
