Red, White, and Blue



Hello!  Used the Splash Watercoloring technique with Distress Oxide Inks on watercolor paper to make a background.  My card today is a Red, White, Blue theme with a patriotic ring.  I might have overdone the splash but I liked the outcome.  Added die cut poppies cut with Memory Box die from watercolor paper scraps colored with same inks. Sentiment from Verve American Heros.

Challenges:
CAS Watercolour Card Challenge: July Splash Watercoloring.  Used splash watercolring technique.

CAS on Friday: Challenge 136 Splash-Watercolor. Used splash on background.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says Red, White, and Blue
Retro Rubber Challenge: #90 Red, White, and Blue.  Sentiment stamp is at least 3 years old. 

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

I like your splattered background. It makes a great base for those gorgeous poppies! I like that it's a patriotic card without being over the top. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenges this week.
