Watercolor As You Like It

Do you like it? I love the colors the way they came out. The technique and challenge is Challenge #130


It was fun making this card for these two challenges. My Stampin Up colors are Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum. The music stamp is from Stampendous, heat embossed in a sparkly light purple embossing powder but it doesn't show up in the photo too good. The sentiment is from SU Picture Perfect. There is a tutorial on the Inkspirational site for the "smooshing". 

Thanks for looking!


  1. Very Pretty! Looks like Northern Lights! And I love the music stamp! Nice job, Karen! :)

  2. The smooshed background is glorious, Karen! Love those vibrant colours. I like the way you've interpreted the dots as music - the music has the same sense of movement. Thanks for joining us at As You See It again for this challenge.

  3. Karen,I love the imaginative way you have interpreted this sketch! The music notes are so clever! And you've smooshed your background to perfection! Thanks for being the first to play along with As You See It Challenges this time!

  4. Beautiful colour combination. I like that you used the music staff to represent the dots on the sketch, too! Great card! I'm glad you shared it with us on the As You See It Challenge blog!

  5. Your smooshing background is gorgeous! Love the colours you used. Thanks for joining us over at Inkspirational!
