Having a lovely day?

Hope you're having a lovely day! I've been playing with watercolours trying to make a bokeh card, it wasn't meant to be today so  it became something else.

Challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground: Use Snippets (the coloured piece and the mat)
Cute Card Thursday: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
4Crafty Chicks: Something Old (the tiny star sequins) /Something New (the Winsor & Newton watercolours)

Materials used:
The background was made by adding Winsor & Newton watercolours onto a wet card stock. Some ghost circles added with white ink, white dots with Sakura pen, white acrylic paint dots, Viva craft pen half pearls and tiny star sequins.
Free sentiment stamp from Craft Stamper stamped with black Archival.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! Hope you'll have success when trying a new card making technique, I'll stay safe from Bokeh for a while and then have a new go.

Warm hugs and love
Maarit
