HOPE...you know you're great!

Hi friends! Hope you had a good weekend and your week is off to a great start! I found some time this weekend to play along with the Color Throwdown challenge (picture below, ctd455); such fun summery colors!

I wanted to try no line watercoloring BUT that didn't quite go as planned. :( #fail

But that's okay; I'll try again soon with a different ink. Mine ended up not really fading out, but I used pencils to outline and add some shading after water coloring the image with Zig Clean Color Brushes - used them to do some outlining too - so lots of different mediums used on this one! I added the dots wth a stencil and faded it out towards the top; once I was completely done - even after 'flinging' on some watered down gold paint, I decided to add the word HOPE and the additional sentiment inside, 'you know you're great'. I added some pattern paper to the inside, actually mixing and matching from totally different paper packs.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great day!
