In the Meadow

Happy Saturday!

This morning I have some time to play along with the challenge at Splitcoast inspired by the Pinterest board called Best Business cards.  Here are the cards that inspired my card:



I began by stamping the image onto cardstock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The embossing works as a resist so it was easy to go back and watercolour the image.
When dry, I mounted the piece with pop dots over scored lines I added for interest.
I stamped this great sentiment from Rubbernecker at the bottom and done.


Adding my card to these challenges:

Supplies:  stamps- Rubbernecker, Memory Box/ watercolours/ Memento bl ink/ Versamark/ clear eb powder/ ScorPal/ paint brush

  4. I adore this. I need to try the embossing before I add color too. Too many things to try and not enough time. Garden is keeping me away from crafting that much now.
