The Card Concept 37

Hey there! Here's my take on The Card Concept 37  Butterfly Effect challenge. My local card club had an emboss resist challenge. I heat embossed Winged Beauties from MFT with White embossing powder on water color paper. Then I water colored the background with Distress Inks. Some of the colors are from the newer releases like Abandoned Coral, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon. The not so new ones are Scattered Straw and Seedless Preserves. Aren't the colors yummy?

The sentiment and word die are Simon Says Stamp. I had fun but still am not getting the results I'd like with water coloring. I'll keep trying tho because it's fun! Some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish it off.
