Water Colors and Chaos!

Let me start by saying this.
Moving is not for the faint of heart.
Holy moly it is way more difficult than I ever could have imagined,
and expensive!
We are still packing and my house currently looks like a UPS facility!
We are less than two weeks from moving,
and my craft stuff is officially in boxes.

I did manage to get a couple of cards done and this was one of them. I played around with SRM's water color twist pencils.  I "smooshed" a bit of the water color pencil on to an acrylic block and mixed it with water.  I used the wet on wet technique, meaning the paper was also wet.  This gives a lot of movement to the colors, which I like a lot! Once all of my various pieces were dry, I cut them into diamond shapes and placed them on the edge of the card. I cut the excess off.   
I added glossy accents to the diamonds and set aside to dry.  Once it was dry, I added a strip of silver sparkly paper and SRM's thank you sticker.  I adhered a few rhinestones and a simple knotted ribbon. 

Thank you for putting up with my sparse some point we will be on the "other side."  That's when the real fun starts...

Wonderful that you were able to get that much done. I hear you about moving. I just moved a huge household into a home about 1/3 the size. I was unable to purge or even pack most of my things. My daughter did it for me.Nearly every box is marked kitchen. Why???
I can't find even 1/8 of my card making supplies. I am tearing my hair out because my big shot is hiding from me. I pray you have a better time of it than I am having.
