Card #25 -Happy Ant-iversary

Wanting to use this Lawn Fawn® stamp set and Koi® water brush purchased long ago, I decided to go for a card with water coloured background.

Embossed the water melon image randomly over a piece of watercolor paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Used lots of water and hints of Crimson, blue hue and sap green water colors for the background. On a scrap piece of pink paper, I stamped the trail of ants and stuck another piece of paper with the sentiment as though one of the ants was holding up the sign. Clearly, I dint have a stamp for the sentiment and decided to keep it hand written. Too avoid it from being too plain, I used the border dies from MFT  for the pink paper strip. Below is a photo of the card.
