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...
