Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

yup - from last Tuesday! I'm always late, late to a challenge - but eventually I make it! :)

The swirly orange and creamy colors in the parfait cup are the inspiration for my yellow and orange panel on this card. I don't have a lot of Halloween stamps but the cute little bat die from A Muse Studio was perfect for putting together this easy card. Below I'll show how easy this panel was to create - thanks to a video I saw from Julie Ebersole...

To make my watercolored panel I used an acrylic block, Tombow markers, water mister and watercolor paper.

First I scribbled the darkest orange on the upper portion of the block - it's not quite half of the block, but almost!

Next I added yellow Tombow marker to the lower portion of the block.

I filled in with green marker on the upper part next to the orange and then in the lower corner next to the yellow - there's no wrong or right amount, really!

Spritz across the block twice with your water mister.

Rock your block onto watercolor paper - allow for the ink to move a bit.

When you remove the block you may have puddling. You can dab it up with a paper towel or swipe it back and forth with your fingertip!

Done! Let it dry a bit and then die cut with your Nestabilities...

I hope you give it a try!
