I created my background with Crystal Effects and reinkers (Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride). Here’s what it looked like after the first layer.

For my next layer I used Wild Wasabi reinker with my Crystal Effects. I also added some glitter.

I made a tag card (see links below for products) with a new Tag Card die from Sizzix and Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst.

Owl Tag card 1 Jeanne_Streiff Color_Burst

I created my background by randomly adding circles to watercolor paper with a sponge dauber and gesso. Once that was dry I spritzed with water and sprinkled on Color Burst (Lemon Yellow, Alizarin Crimson and Ultramarine Blue). I used this for the front of my card and the scallop trim which is included with the Sizzix Tag Card Die. I die cut my card from white cardstock and then attached my Color Burst layer on top (I used one half of my tag die to cut it).

My owl was cut from my wrapping paper. I made the card background to mimic the colors and the dots on the wings.
