She Sells Seashells

While I was in watercolor mode I thought I would try water-coloring this Tim Holtz Blueprint design.  I used a mostly wet on wet technique with some drying between layers. To create a highlight on the shell I lifted off some damp color with a piece of cotton towel.  I used my imagination to figure out colors for the shell as I'm not a shell expert.  I did some water flicking to imitate bubbles. My goal was to have a happy South Beach color vibe to the card. And of course... the shell was liberally slathered with clear Wink of Stella glitter.
