Painter's Palette card

Good morning!  I have a super sparkly card to share with you today.  It's a little larger than my normal size, measuring in at about 6.5 x 5 inches.  The background paper is from my Amy Tangerine- Sketchbook 6x6 paper pad.  I wanted to make sure there were watercolor splotches from more colors, so I added a little purple to the bottom left corner and a little yellow to the bottom right.  I put the black polka dot washi tape down the center to hide a seam in the paper- there was a bit of a pattern showing in the bottom left corner, so I covered it up with the scrap that I cut off the paper.  The other seam is covered up by the paintbrush.  Sneaky, I know.

The image is cut from the Silhouette Online Store.  A tip: keep a careful eye on the eyes and mouth.  My guy's mouth got away from me after I had already put my Cameo away, and I spent some time on the floor with a flashlight until it was found.  I inked up the paintbrush and palette with some Distress Ink, trying to make it look a little more used.  Each of the colors of paint has been covered with a matching color of Stickles to really make it sparkle.  You know I love some sparkle!

The sentiment in the top corner is from Pink by Design's "Bracketful" set.
