365 Card Challenge Day 176- Water and Sand, today's challenge:

The challenge for today is to use watercolor paints on your card, and to use a sanding technique -"water and sand".

I started by making this distressed flower, I punched out various sizes of circles, then dry embossed a couple of the circles to give them texture. I then sanded all the edges and crumped them up and finished with a glitter dot in the middle.

I created my center image by stamping the sentiment with Versacolor Pinecone and embossing it with clear embossing powder. I then stamped over that with a text background image. I used my tombow markers directly on my Stampin'Up! Watercolor Trio stamps before stamping the paper. I think it turned out rather well.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Bo Bunny, Stamp'in Up!-Water Color Trio, Stampabilities-Faded Text Background, misc ribbon, glitter dot.
