Wish Big!

Here's a card using a fun technique that I learned last week in the Watercolor for Card Makers class.  You watercolor on some watercolor paper and then lay a stencil on top of it (I used the Simon Says Stamp Chevron Pattern Stencil).  Tape down the edges of the stencil, and when the watercolor dries, it has picked up the pattern of the stencil.  Cool, right?

Then I added the word "wish," made with the My Creative Time Lowercase Fun Dies and Papertrey Ink true black cardstock and stamped "Big" from MCT's Wow!  So Many Candles stamp set.

On the inside, I added another sentiment from that same stamp set, along with a gift card pocket that I made with the MCT Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die.

After uploading my pics, I realized I forgot to stamp a sentiment on my gift card pocket, and I have a whole stamp set from My Creative Time just for that purpose:  Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments!  So I had to go back and add one.  Complete!
