For my card i started with my background first. I used distress ink and a small clear acetate sheet to pick up the color and add it to a panel of water color paper. I have really been in the watercolor background mood and this was my first attempt, i have since gotten better in cards i have already shared on my blog. To add more interest the watercolor i added some water to the semi dry ink, which bled the ink out here and there.

Next i stamped the Art Impressions Eunice on some watercolor paper. I used distress markers to color her, then fussy cut her out. Then i die cut a stitched oval from some white card stock. I added Eunice with foam dots and added some ground at her feet.

I added the oval to my watercolored card with foam tape and then stamped the You're How Old?! sentiment in the bottom right corner. Last i added three white enamel dots.
