Paper Players......hello

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at The Paper Players.

I started my card with a base of Thick Whisper White card stock.

I then used some water color paper to create my background piece,
I used Melon Mambo and Island Indigo ink pads and a lot of water and just swirled together and let it run. I then dried with my heat gun and and a bunch of droplets of water and let those set for a bit then dabbed off which is what creates the light circle spots. Love that cool effect.

When I first sat down to make my card I had thought I would use a flower of some sort for the circle element on this sketch, (no surprise there huh? lol)
But in the end I did not like what I was doing so I decided to use a butterfly instead.

I die cut my butterfly from Melon Mambo card stock.
The hello is a die cut, non SU.
I used some silver glimmer paper for the other flag element.

I covered the whole water colored piece  with my wink of stella pen, it has a pretty little glimmer, you can kinda see it in this pic:

Thanks for stopping by today!
