But anyway I started my card by stamping the wheelbarrow on watercolor cardstock. Then I used my Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils, BUT I didn't use water to smooth out the pencil. Instead, I used an alcohol blender pen!! Make sure you get/use an extra blender because the pencil can stain your pen tip.

After coloring, I cut out the image with a square die. From my desk, I found this strip of green pattern paper and some extra watercolor splatter scrap paper. I stamped the I Dig you sentiment on the splatter piece and then used a stapler to secure it to the pattern paper strip.

From blue cardstock, I made a card base and then added the strip of pattern to the card with foam tape. Then I added the stamped square but at a little angle. I trimmed off the overhang and lastly added a few matching glitter enamel dots.
