Believe it or not, this card started out as a panel of watercolour paper dry embossed with Stampin' Up poppies! I filled in the poppies with watercolour paints and Twinkling H2Os, before overspraying with Sunflower Gold to add highlights and spread the colour. I didn't LOVE the panel as a standalone panel, but I thought it would create a cool background to fill the negative space behind my diecut bird, which I then popdotted and added a Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle. The Memory Box Woodland Branch was diecut from watercolour patterned paper. The Papertrey Ink Wet Paint "Happy" sentiment was inked with Distress Inks Wild Honey then misted with water before stamping, similarly the "Birthday" sentiment was inked with Distress Inks Barn Door then misted with water before stamping, as the smaller letters ran quite a bit, I overstamped the "Birthday" sentiment so it was easier to read.

FABULOUS watercolour inspiration.
