Inktense with die cuts

I scribbled Inktense watercolour pencils on some card before intensifying the colours with a wet paintbrush, then die cut the sentiment and mounted on a base card.  Then I totally mangled one side of the card pulling it back up so I could stamp some black stripes underneath. Sound familiar LOL? In real life it doesn't look so bad but the camera is unforgiving!

I then wanted some brightly coloured enamel dots but I don't have any so I scribbled colours on some card, wet paintbrushed them, dried, then hole punched some dots.  After fixing them to the card I covered them in Glossy Accents for some shine.

I used the die cut piece on another card, this time mounting on some black cardstock to bring up the bright colours.

I'd like to enter these into:

Thanks for visiting.
