There are so many ways to interpret this challenge! You must go visit the ATSM blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration projects by my teamies. 

I decided to concentrate on the beautiful watercolor wash and white lettering.

I used one of my favorite coloring mediums, the Camlin Photo inks to create the green panel. I put drops of yellow, blue and green inks on a large acrylic block, sprayed the whole thing with plenty of water and then placed a piece of white card stock over it. After the paper was dry, I dropped some water over it and blotted with a clean rag for a more textured and distressed look. The stamp is Joy! Crafts Hydrangea Silhouette. I staped with Hero Arts White Unicorn pigment ink and them heat embossed with some opaque white EP. I cut the panel with my Gina Marie Xcut Rectangles die and mounted it on a kraft card base with some fun foam. The sentiment is from The Big, The Bold and Extras set by Winnie and Walter. Here is a closer look at the card.

Hope you like my card and join in the fun at the ATSM blog. You can link your beautiful creations here.
