Morgan's Art World - for the ladies

Saturday May 9, 2015 
Please up date your favorite challenge blogs.. what once was Fitztown is now Morgan's Art World It would be great if you joined/followed us and then you can be on top of the new things happening at Morgan's Art World.  Thanks
I am on a new design team called Morgan's Art World / Morgan Fitzsimons which was a part of Fitztown.. Fitztown is not a part of this new group anymore.  We will have a new blog and blog hop in June with awesome cards by the design team and new challenges..  But right now we are regrouping and there is a facebook page..  
 The Morgan Fitzsimons etsy shop will be open soon.   

OK this is my card and I am in love with the background.. What do you think??
I have been seeing different U-Tube videos on watercolor backgrounds so stuck my foot in and got it wet.. I love it. I took watercolor paper, some re-inkers from Ranger and wet my paper so it was quite damp and then dropped on different colors and then kind of turned the paper to get it to blend and then spritzed with more water and turned it more to blend to desire effect. Dried the paper then did some water drops to give a nice distress look to the design, once satisfied with that I then took a Stampin up stencil of stars and watered down some gold paint and very lightly added the stars. I dried it all and then put it aside. I used the image Ballerina /4 dancer ladies colored her up and then cut her out.. I used the sentiment from Paper Pretties die cut with spellbinder die, and took some rayon thread and put it under the sentiment, added some sequins and called it good.  Of course I colored the ballerina in copics.
