Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge February 2020

Hi Friends! It's a new month and we have a new challenge for you at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge where the challenge is

Here's my card

Initially, I thought I'd make a card with lots of adhesive rhinestones but couldn't figure out how to add watercolour to my card. So, I looked through my stamp sets and came across the WPlus9 Sparkle and Shine stamp set. I loved the sentiment - perfect for a "bling" card and the lovely jewels. I stamped the sentiment with some gems around it with Versafine Onyx Black ink on 96 lb bristol. I made sure that the ink had dried before I added colour using Distress Inks (spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, peacock feathers) with a water brush. I trimmed the panel slightly and matted on black cardstock. To add a bit of sparkle and shimmer, I added some Wink of Stella on each gem.
