Hello all!
I was dabbling a bit with my Gansai Tambi water colors this afternoon and ended up creating this card which I will be linking up to several current challenges.
My card features Hennah Elements by Altenew and the splatters came from an image by MFT called Distressed Patterns. Several clear sequins were also added.
Have a great day!

Welcome friends!
I though I would squeeze in one more card tonight.
For my card today I stenciled an old Impressability by Spellbinders called Pebbles with various distress inks on a die cut stitched rectangular wafer die by Simon Says Stamp. I don't think they make these anymore. They were made of thin metal and bend easily out of shape.
I die cut the Hello die by PTI in white and dark grey and off centered the two when adhering together to give it a shadow effect. The sentiment is also by PTI from the mini Wonderful Words: Hello. I added a silver thread nest behind the Hello.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Hugs ~ Rema
