Happy Birthday Watercolor Craziness

Been meaning to play along with Virginia Lu’s new challenge – Virginia View (especially since the first ‘view’ is watercolor – one of my top faves!!), but you know how it goes when Miss Mojo takes a vacay in sunny Barcelona without you and you’re left staring at your crafty crap.  Pale and alone.

Well you can be the judge if she’s returned, but here’s what I’m entering:

Not just any watercolor, this is three colors of Twinkling H20s, mad shimmery in person (see the pic below to get an idea).  I cut out the happy and birthday dies, and like one destined for the insane asylum, I popped up all those little cut out pieces.  *Insert deranged look coupled with carpal tunnel here*  The pinwheel is CTMH, inked in SU Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst, and Hero Arts Mint Julep.  It spins too!

Sad how cameras have a tough go of catching shimmery glittery things, such sad news for us crafty folk.

Thanks for visiting me, and best of luck to Virginia and her new challenge!

ETA – Totally meant to tell you all that the layout for this came from Sketchbook Saturday, sorry Chupa!
