Watercolour masking

Hiya! Quick post from me as I have a poorly little lady with me :-( Here's a card I started a few weeks ago and have only just got around to finishing. It's using this tutorial from Kristina Werner using masking fluid to draw a circle, then splotch in Distress Inks and water so they blend together. Then, once everything was dry and I had rubbed away the masking fluid, I used the same colours of ink and flicked little splatters over the top along with water and some white misting ink. Once that was dry I stamped and embossed what I think is my fave sentiment stamp ever, over the top, and matted everything to a purple card base.

I'm going to enter this into these challenges; Addicted to CAS Distress, AAA Challenges Watercolour Rain, Viginia's View Embossing and Sieze the Birthday Anything goes option. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Supplies;

Ink - Distress Inks 'Seedless Preserves', 'Chipped Sapphire' & 'Peacock Feathers'

Sentiment - Mama Elephant 'Make a Wish'

Other - white embossing powder, watercolour masking fluid & Studio Calico white spray mist

Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Blackberry Bliss'

This is so fantastic. I used this same stamp set, and wish I saw your card before I made mine. I love your vibrant colors and the way you confined your coloring to a circle.
