Red and Pink- CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hello and Welcome
Time for more fun at the 

Please check out our colour theme this month and all the fantastic cards created by our team.
We also welcome as our guest this month, the most talented Darnell from djkardkreations.

So onto my card.
I began with this fun plaid embossing folder as I wanted to use it to create my background.
I inked it up with some pink and red Distress Oxide inks, sprayed with water and pressed onto my heavy weight cardstock.  I then dried it with my heat gun and placed it into my Misti.
Using my Memento markers, I scribbled over the Valley Berries stamp with some pinks first, then some reds, sprayed with water and pressed onto my inky background.  
I stamped the sentiment using some Tuxedo black ink in the top corner.
Keeping with the simple look of this card, I pop dot mounted it onto a plain white card base.

Hope you will come and play along with us and thanks so much for the visit.

I love the lovely tone-on-tone look (pink and red valley berries over plaid), Karen! I was wondering how you made the cool background. Thanks for reminding me of using an embossing folder this way to make a wonderful watercolor effect.
