220. January HOC challenge mix media and/or colours + video tutorial

Hello everyone !

First card in 2018 - bright and colourful. Sparkly, happy and ... pink.
So this is my first play with 'eclipse' kind of cards. But I made it with a twist so no dies needed.
I feel this card is more secure for postage, then regular 'eclipse' card.
Well what can I say ... It was fun. I didn't make watercolour card for a while. I'm very happy that January House of cards challenge gives me opportunity to play with Stampin' Up!inks.

This is my inspiration for January HOC Challenge
