Change


Here is today's card.

The theme at Splitcoast today was Graduation.  Since I don't know anyone who is graduating, I made a card with this great sentiment which I think would work great for a grad.

I began by using an old Distress wheel from Stampin Up (sorry I don't know what it is called) and rolled it over my Versamark pad then onto my 90 lb. watercolour paper.  I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder and sprinkled Brusho in orange and yellow over the top; sprayed with a generous amount of water and let the colours blend together.
When my paper was dry, I stamped the flowers from Magenta and the sentiment from Hampton Art using Stazon ink.   
(The sentiment must be an old one as it was in a $4. bin at Michaels)
