Welcome to the Neighborhood -Photo Tutorial

Hello everyone, I'm here with another amazing Monday challenge for My Craft Spot.
 This weeks challenge...
 Welcome to the Neighborhood

I'm really excited to share my neighborhood card with you today, I've actually tried a new technique that I came up with on my own... perhaps it has been done, but I've never seen it... so then I guess I can say this is my original idea right?    :)
This is my vinyl watercolor card
I saw this cute house image on the Silhouette blog -HERE (I added a frame around the image) and thought it would be fun to watercolor it... then the idea came to me of using vinyl on the card so when I water colored it the vinyl would stay put, instead of cardstock that might wrinkle or tear when it got wet.  Also when using vinyl it's sticky on the back so it omits the use of messy glue... bonus!
Used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers for the color, and Memento ink for the sentiment.

Prefect sentiment for this card! The stamp is from the Friends & Neighbors Inside & Out stamp set from My Craft Spot I popped up the banner using foam tape.

I'll definitely be making more vinyl water color cards in the future... and hope to make a video tutorial too   :)
