Not the wall this time, but on the card. Hello. I hope you're having a great weekend. Seems like it's been a long time since I've posted. This card was made for the splitcoast limited supplies challenge on Friday - use handwriting on your card. I wanted to play with my twinkling H2O's, so I pulled out one of my new stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms - single coneflower. It has a nice open image that's great for watercoloring.
I stamped the image in black craft ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I like that the embossing gives a bit of a ridge, making it easier to stay within the lines. I used my aqua painter and blended several colors together on the flower. I really like how the image turned out and it's all shimmery. It's matted on black and marigold morning.
I didn't want the background to be plain, but I wanted it to be subtle, so I stamped the same image several times in white craft ink on both the coral and burgundy. Using my mat pack as a guide, I punched holes and threaded the hemp through and tied it in the corner.
The sentiment is handwritten (and yes, I realize there's a misspelling). Hopefully, the recipient won't mind. The image panel is popped up on mounting tape.
