w&w Belated 2nd Birthday Bash | Gold + Watercolor Challenge with Heather H

w&w_bb2ndb_challengefinal

Good morning! Heather here stopping by to share my Challenge for the Winnie and Walter Birthday Bash! I was trying to decide between Watercolor or Gold - and finally decided, why choose? How about I just do both? Here is my card to inspire you (also giving you a peek at some fun new Winnie and Walter product coming later this month! Shhhh...):


I used watercolors to create an ombre background in pink, then added some white and gold splatters to this (my first touch of gold!).


I used a fabulous new heart die - die cut solid in vellum, then die cut again in the faceted design with glitter gold cardstock (second bit of gold!). I heat embossed my sentiment - again from another soon to be released set! - on black cardstock, and used some foam adhesive to attach it over the top. Here is a closer look:


I hope you'll play along in this challenge! There are so many wonderful ways to use the theme - you could heat emboss something in gold, then watercolor it in; you could add a sprinkling of gold sequins or glitter over a watercolor creation; the possibilities are endless!

Happy Birthday Winnie and Walter!!!
