June CCC Thinking of You



Now that I have a few weeks without travel ahead of me I can participate in the Card Chain Challenge put together by Deborah Nolan.  It is fun to send off a hand made card and to get one in return. You can sign up for the July chain here.

I decided to use the colors and the sketch very loosely.  My card is going to the fabulous Becca of The Damsel of Distress, and I want to make a card she will hopefully enjoy.  My two favorite things are embossing and water colors.

I prepared a water color panel, after it dried I added some embossing paste leaves.  While those were drying I water colored some flowers, and also heat embossed some flowers on vellum as well as the sentiment. Once everything was dry, I cut the panel down adhered the flowers and sentiment. Added some flicks of gold, some black liquid pearl and added it all to a coordinated base card.


Supplies: Canson Water Color Paper, Liquid Pearls, Heidi Swap Color, Goldens Molding Paste, Kuretake watercolors, Gourment Rubber Stamps Stencil, Simon Says Stamp Artful Flowers, Vellum, SU Cardstock.
