Watercolor Background

I have not made many cards with this Bundle, just ran out of time!  But now that I have the NEW Watercolor Pencils I had to try a Background for this Sparkling Star!  Watercolor Pencils available January 4th.

 I stamped the Swoosh in Night of Navy on Smoky Slate card stock for a background.  The Star was cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

 For the Oval, I colored with the Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point and Basic Grey pencils.  I then used the Aquapainter to WASH the color.  I should have used a more circular motion in the initial coloring, but kind of like the subtle lines.  The sentiment was stamped with the Misti, but I mistakenly cut the Oval FIRST, which did not allow me to anchor the corner....(what corner).....yes lesson learned CUT AFTER you stamp!!!
But it does give an offset effect so not a total loss.  The Sentiments in this stamp set are BEAUTIFUL!! Added a Night of Navy Oval behind and then popped up on the card base.  I used Glue Dots to add the Glimmering Star.
