MCT Inspire Me Wednesday ~ refuse to sink!

Good Morning!  It's another Inspire Me Wednesday over at My Creative Time.  The card I made for today is actually inspired by two things.  Colors and theme are from the picture below, the layout and gesso technique are from a class I took earlier this year.

First I stamped the white lines in the background using gesso onto watercolor paper.  Don't let the gesso dry on your stamps, clean immediately.  Once the paper was dry, I watercolored with distress ink.  I was really that simple to create this card!

I like your take on the inspirational picture. MCT had the perfect anchor and the coloring over the Gesso is beautiful. Your card is way prettier than the photo.
