Wish Big



Happy Thursday! 
I am still making tons of cards for the Dare to get Dirty challenges over at Splitcoaststampers. I have always played along as a fan club member, but this year I get to play along as a Dirty Girl :)
To make this clean and simple card, I started with an A2 card base cut with watercolor paper and made a background wash by  misting my paper with water and then laying a little color down using Zig clean color watercolor markers. After the paper was dry I used my MISTI to stamp the greeting from the set Bold Wishes in Versafine black onyx ink. I always use the MISTI any time I use watercolor paper because of the texture it doesn't stop clean and crisp.
I added some sequins to give it some sparkle. I also made this one for a few challenges
