You make me happy

Today I have a fun card for you that I will be entering into the Clever Dexter Challenge.

I am using an image from Oddball StampsBig Eyed Rainbow Nelly & Her NymphsThe theme for the challenge was to use a favorite technique, I used watercoloring. 

I made the background with Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers.  I colored Nelly with Arteza Watercolor pencils and Altenew Watercolor Brush Makers.  I trimmed around the image with the Tim Holtz Deckle Cutter.  Check out the Clever Dexter Challenge HERE.

I used some washi tape from Altenew.
