Brilliant.

Mmmm…sequins, glitter, watercolor yumminess.  Pink, orange, aqua, and green happiness.  I had such a great time making this card!

I have become so enamored by cards from the likes of Aga and others that I just had to try and replicate their dreamy, glistening wonderful-ness that I admire. I don’t think I’m there yet, but I’ve really been working at stretching my creative muscles as of late, and I think that’s a good place to be!

I began with the inspiration image from this week’s Fusion Card Challenge:

I love the pale pink background paired with the the brightly colored butterflies.

The base layer of the card is painted with a combination of pink and orange pastel watercolors. I die cut some arrows using my Cameo….heat embossed some stamped splotches….painted some glossy accents medium and covered with glitter….and glued on some sequins.
