Watercolor Blog Hop


Hello everybody! I am back from our vacation in the South of England and enjoyed playing with my stamps again last night. Here comes a card I made for the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop:


I used Winnie & Walter stamps and dies for my card. The flowers are from In Bloom: Addie's Garden and the sentiment is from The Big, the Bold and Friends Cutaways. I started with a panel of watercolor paper and stamped the flower and the leaves, then I heat-embossed them with white pearl embossing powder. Now I used a water tank brush to wet the paper around the embossed areas. Then I applied the color. After it was dried, I adhered the panel to a card base. For the word, I inked a piece of cardstock with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with the same embossing powder to die-cut my word from it. I adhered the word and finished the card off with sequins. Here is another look at the card:


Thanks for stopping by today and happy hopping!

Vanessa
