Wish Big!

I began to diecut a watercolor cardstock with the Lawn Fawn "Stitched Square Stackables" die. Then I diecut the grassy border.
I stamped the dog and the balloons with "archival ink". I mask the balloon in the centre and stamped the other two, so that they stay behind.
Then I put tape (ATG) behind the watercolor cardstock, press it on my "non-stick craft sheet" and began watercoloring.

I used distress ink and markers: brushed corduroy, aged mahogany, wild honey, crushed olive, twisted citron (this is the first time I use it, a very bright color), peacock feathers and picked raspberry.

Lawn Fawn stamps: "Critters at the Dog Park", "Birthday Tags" and "Party Animal".
