Yesterday I showed you one of the new IO sentiments as well as one of the new Cover a Card backgrounds.  Today I am going to do it again.  I have been motivated to work with both lately.

For my card, I stamped the Cover a Card background onto heavy, 140lb watercolor paper with black Versafine ink.  I then spritzed the paper with water and added some Peerless watercolors to the top and let the colors blend with each other. 

Items used:
Plaid Cover a Card CC233
Saying- You are Capable E17108

Don't forget to visit the others in the hop!
