Happy Happy Friday!!! Today I am sharing a soft embossed and watercolored card with you here and on the SweetStamps.com Blog. I love watercoloring, and when I recently got the new Cracked Pistachio Ink pad in I had to mix the two...
Distress INK PAD MINIS
Distress INK PADS
Fine Detail EP DIAMONDS & PEARLS
Curly Butterfly 437
With Sympathy 975
To create this card I began by heat embossing my butterfly image onto watercolored cardstock. Next I smooshed some Distress inks onto my craft mat and water washed ( or waterboarded as I like to think of it, hehehe ) my paper. I then dropped my colors in with a brush and let the water do it's magic. I LOVE how soft and calm these colors are together. Once my paper was dry I stamped my sentiment and added a strip of patterned paper down the side. The slight touch of glitter in the embossing powder gives just enough shine that I didn't feel any embellishments were needed.
I am entering this into the following:
Love's Rubber Stamps: Add a Sentiment
Dream Valley: Things With Wings
Sparkle and Sprinkle: I used Glitter Embossing Powder
