Classy Cards Fall Watercolors

Hi, I'm sharing an inspiration card for the current Classy Cards 'n Such challenge.  I only used one die on this card, but it is so lovely it can stand on it's own.  Coupon code JENNY-10 will give you 10% your total purchase at Classy Cards 'n Such.

I cut the oval center out with the Memory Box Country Fence Oval Frame die.  I colored the die cut with distress inks, trying to use more muted greens so the grass didn't look too Spring-like.  I set the die cut aside to dry and took another piece of white card stock and created a background.  

I misted the background paper using Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist.  It has a lovely sheen to it.  Then I sprinkled the new Ken Oliver Earth Tones Color Bursts over the damp paper.  The colors spread and blend together so nicely.  It's also a lot of fun to do!  The background looks like an impressionist or maybe pointalist painting.

I glued the die cut to the background and positioned the white oval frame around the die.  I then took the whole project and mounted it onto a light blue A2 sized card.
