Shimmery Watercolour

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I have my card for OCC Sketch #26 to share with you.

I used the colours from Color Throwdown #103 - Riding Hood Red (my fav red at the moment) Certainly Celery and River Rock. I'm SO glad River Rock is one of our new Colour Collection colours, it's such a pretty neutral.
I wanted to create a pretty panel for the main part of the card, so sprayed my image with Glimmermist to make the colours run and add some sparkle. I LOVE this effect! It came out lovely and soft, almost like stamping on tissue paper. Isn't the colour combo beautiful? I'll definitely have to use this one again for a Christmas card.

Head on over to see what the wonderful design team have come up with to inspire you this week!
