Watercolor plus Hello Thin Cut

I received a the "hello" card from my friend, and upline, Kay for my birthday.  I loved how simple and quick the card looked, so I made one of my own, changing a few things up.
I took inspiration from the colors of Sugar Rush - mostly Raspberry and Blossom
The base of the card is made from Raspberry cardstock, as is the Thin Cut "thanks" (Z3259 - "hello" comes in the same package).  The next layer has been Watercolored with our watercolor paints (Z3132).  The two hearts you see are from the Hearts Thin Cut (Z3260).  The large heart was run through with White Daisy cardstock, and the small heart was cut from Gold Glitter Paper (Z3238).  I keep the non-used part of the hearts in the package for later use.  : )

Behind the white heart the paint is #12 that leads down to #14. Start with a wet brush and pick up the color.  Brush back and forth without too much worry.  If you want more color, put the brush back into the paint without getting it wet again.  Clean the brush (although you don't have to if you started with the lighter of the two colors), and repeat for the second color.  You can see in the right picture where my color got lighter and I went back for more ink (I probably got the brush a little wetter).

The cool thing is that no two cards will be identical!

The cards were finished off with Sugar Rush Dots (Z3310 - only available through April 2017).  The picture shows two of the three colors the dots come in.  The third color is silver/white.
