Sightseeing with Heart2Heart Challenges

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart is a Sightseeing Challenge.  I knew I wanted to play with my watercolor paints so I scrolled through my CTMH cartridges until I found the perfect card to create a night sky with splatters of white and yellow!  What could be more perfect for a sightseeing challenge than a night time in Paris scene?
This sweet scene is from our Artfully Sent Cartridge, one of the three CTMH cricut cartridges that will be retiring at the end of the month.  Art Philosophy, Artfully Sent and Artiste are all retiring while Artbooking and Artistry will be joined by a new cartridge!  
To make the watercolor splatter effect, get your paint brush REALLY wet with watercolor and then tap the brush against your other hand.  The size of the spatters are effected by the size of the brush so the bigger the brush, the bigger in dimension the splatters will be.  I used a medium round brush to do these.

I used the hide contour function to make copies of the poodle and the woman plus an extra layer for her dress so I could add a bit of extra dimension to this card.  Her dress is from our current Florence collection - such a pretty paper!
