It's time for a new challenge at
This month, Loll is hosting the challenge.
How fun is that?
I've had this Ironwork Background stamp for a long time.
It wasn't in my NBUS box, but I don't remember ever using it.
I could be wrong though.
I stamped and heat embossed the image onto Mixed Media paper.
To watercolor, I smooshed some Distress Ink onto a small piece of acetate,
spritzed with water and pressed it onto the embossed piece.
You can see a tutorial for this on Karen's Snippets Blog.
I repeated this process using different colors and blending them together
a bit with the brush, sometimes drying in between colors.
When it was all dry, I die cut the piece and added the
Memory Box butterfly and sentiment.
(The black outline butterfly has a solid die cut of vellum underneath.)
Our Design Team has a beautiful variety of rainbow watercolor cards
