All the Little Things

This covers Days 2 & 3 of Kathy Racoosin's #30coloringchallenge.

I used stamps from 3 different Art Impressions' sets.  The birdhouse is from WC Series 7 Set 2-3545 and the rest from the Flower Set-4052 & Foliage Set-4051.  I used this piece from My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints #29 to plan out the placement of my stamping.

I stamped on a piece of watercolor paper with Marvy LePlume II markers and softened with a damp brush.  When I was done I centered this die over my stamping/watercoloring and ran it through my die cut machine.  I cut another frame from heavy white card stock.  I used the extra pieces to add dimension to the three watercolored pieces so they would be raised above the frame.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Twice the Thanks and heat embossed in Recollection's Pesto embossing powder.

Here's another angle:

I added a few matte sequins from a couple of mixes by Pretty Pink Posh.

Thank you for stopping by!!  Love and appreciate your comments too!

P.S.: I'll also be adding this to the Online Card Class Heat Wave Pre-class student gallery (class starts Monday, July 11, 2016.)
