I did some water coloring yesterday with my Peerless watercolors on some Ranger watercolor paper. I cut this strip out of it and matted it onto some light olive colored cardstock and then onto the blue. One little trick I found to do with watercolor paper if it is warped is run it through your Cuttlebug with the sandwich as if you were embossing a Spellbinders die (for me that's A plate, 2 B plates, and a piece of chipboard.). It will straighten out your watercolor paper and make it easier to adhere onto other cardstock.
The fun part of my card is the owl and it's die cuts. The wood veneer frame is by Maya Roads. I die cut a white and then a sparkly shape that mimics the wood. Then I die cut the two pennants hanging down from it. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge with my Cricut with Recollections paper. Then the owl in the center is a brad by Eyelet Outlet. I didn't add a sentiment yet because I'm still pondering if this would make a good graduation card or not.
