You Can Do Anything

Hello! Today I wanted to share this card inspired by Runaway Inspired Challenge # 45. I was inspired by the black and white versus a splash of fun colors...and that is just the direction I went with for my card. 
 I masked the side that I wanted to keep clean with post its, then me and my daughter had fun splashing water colors with a fat paint brush that was very saturated in paint. We had a piece of paper on the side where we tested to see if the water color was dark enough, if satisfied, we splashed on our prepared cardstock, I just used Papertrey Ink white cardstock. Let me tell you; my daughter was giggling in joy every time we splashed a new color. This was so much fun.
I did some creative cutting with the word "anything" using my silhouette to reveal a little bit of the clean white background on the side that I had masked by using some of the word "anything" negative and positive cut.

Thanks for stopping by. Come on and join us over at Runaway Inspired.

The word "anything" is from this free silhouette file that Kristina shared in her blog a while little back.

Note: my paper did warp a little but I placed it in a fat book and after a little while it was nice and flat again. I could have use watercolor paper but I really wanted a white background. The Papertrey Ink cardstock held up just fine.
