Color Dare 238 - Masculine Birthday

We are in prime time birthday season for my family and this week is no exception so I used this week's Color Dare challenge colors for this masculine birthday card. 

To make this card, I broke out my watercolor paints and used a splatter technique to cover the whole card with Willow and Peacock colors.  Then I did a basic wash with Willow watercolor on the left side of the card.  For the Peacock layer on the bottom, I used a sponge dauber with Peacock ink.

For the title, I stamped the "One in a Million" phrase on White Daisy and layered that on Peacock paper.  Next up was to cut a few circles out of Peacock paper and apply a few white sequins.  

Overall, I'm real happy with the results, it's fun to use different techniques on cards.  Thanks for stopping by, check out the other Color Dare entries at the link below.
