I colored up the sweet girl with my watercolor paints. I then fussy cut her out.
Next, I took some watercolor paper, cut it to fit on my card base as a mat, and grabbed some of my colored sprays. I used a combination of 4 Dylusions sprays. I opened up 3 of them, and using the base of the sprayer (the straw part) to swirl some color above where the girl's head would eventually be. Then I spritzed the yellow spray, and a little water after that. I thought it needed a bit of sparkle, so I used some clear embossing powder and crystal glitter from Stampendous.
I love how it turned out! I painted a bit around the edge of my card base for some added color. This is my way of showing what happens to children when they read. This is certainly the case with my own kids. Their minds and imaginations grow to come up with amazing things! Please be sure to visit the rest of the ADfD gals over on the blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
