A Blog Named Hero May Challenge - Watercolor!

It's time for a new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero!    This month's theme is Watercoloring, and our collaboration partner is Honey Bee Stamps.   I decided to combine some Honey Bee dies with Hero Arts stamps to create a sweet baby card!
To create my focal piece, I cut a 3 x 3 square of watercolor paper and sprinkled on several shades of blue and green Brusho watercolor powders.   I spritzed on some water and tilted the paper back and forth to create the "sea".   Once dry, I stamped the seahorse and several babies with Versafine ink and added some bubbles with Nuvo Drops.
I wanted to keep the background simple, so I die cut the 'special' & 'delivery' words  multiple times from white paper (first backed with Stick-It to make adhering them easy-peasy!).   I arranged the words over my card base,  added some ribbon from my stash, and then adhered the watercolored and stamped piece to the card with foam adhesive.

I love how this turned out!    It's not your typical baby card, but that just makes it more fun!   I hope you get a chance to play along with our challenge this month - break out your watercolors (any kind!) and Hero Arts goodies and create something awesome!   Link it up for a chance to win!   See you again soon, crafty friends.....
