Woo Hoo Congrats Grad Card with Lexa

Woo Hoo it's Friday already!

Lexa here today with my favorite teal and yellow color combo with inspiration for a graduation card. I don't know why I just love both colors paired side by side. What do you think?

The focal point on my card is this adorable little owl from Woo Hoo stamp set.  He's the cutest!

I started my card with a piece of watercolor paper.  I scribble some Evergreen Bough, Crushed Olive and Mustard Seed Distress Inks on a plastic sheet and spray them with some water. After that I just put my watercolor paper on it, press lightly then you'll have a pretty watercolor background.  It doesn't have to be perfect, imperfection makes everything prettier. :)

All the leaves are stamped with the same Evergreen Bough ink which I slightly blended using a wet paint brush. For all my images, I stamped and colored before I die-cut them all with the coordinate Woo Hoo dies. I love the neat white border when they are popped out the die cut machine.

To finish, I arranged all the pieces together, stamped the sentiments and this card is ready to go. I also add a generous amount of glossy accent for the glasses, it adds an extra something.

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful weekend!
