Good evening! My title reminded me of some code being typed out tonight. I must be staring at computer code to much lately. So tonight's card used embossing and watercoloring. I saw the CASE Study card for the week below and decided to used the same color pallet to create a water color background. I started by embossing the thank you with clear powder over black ink on Papertrey white cardstock. Then took my water color crayons(SU) and a waterbrush to paint the background.
Trimed the block down to 3 3/4 by 5" when dry and mounted it onto a PTI white card base. The card below was my inspiration.
Thanks for stopping. Sweet dreams to you!
Hey all! I bet you thought I had dropped off the face of this earth...well almost. My husband has had 3 surgeries in 3 months and my dad has gone to spend eternity with God. Busy time in our lives. So it really felt good to spend a little time stamping tonight. Just to play with ink and paper makes me happy. The card below is a favorite technique of mine it is to layer images to create a collage effect. Papertrey Ink had it as a challenge last week and there was just no time to stamp so I thought it would work with this weeks challenge also that is "watercoloring over embossing".
