Make it Monday #195 A La Cart


This week at Make It Monday, the challenge to you is to pick one of the weekly videos that you might have missed or did not get a chance to play along with and create a project using that technique or tutorial. I needed a quick birthday card today and this one fit the bill. So easy to do and it lends itself to a masculine card as well. 

This is Nicole Heady's #161 Watercolor Splats.
Here is her card.

                                                                  And Here is mine!
I used water color paper by Tim Holtz and his Distressed Ink too.
Then I put dabs of water for the spots.  The greeting is from Wet Paint Stamp set by PTI.
I am wrapping up my craft room for the trip to Florida.  It is as much of a cleaning job as it is packing.  I have forgotten most of what I have in my STASH!  So much fun to reminisce, but not very effective when your trying to pack and take only what you may need.  I think I need it all. 
Everyone have a Happy New Year, as you look back over the last year and see what has happened,  and what will come in the new year.   Remember that the new year is a brand new pallet for you to paint/stamp/color on!
Happy New Year!
