I didn't. But I do now.
I bought the Flower of the Month Collection from Papertrey Ink a
couple few years ago.
I decided that I needed to us it this year.
We did this card in my January class. I discovered an easy way to add watercolor to the background.
After stamping and heat embossing the script stamp, we dipped a baby wipe
into the ink squeezed into the lid of the inkpad and gently rubbed it
in a circular motion over the embossing. It leaves a nice soft color
that dries very quickly. We did use mixed media paper.
When I tried it with the Neena, it pilled.
The carnations were inked with markers and the color pulled into the
center of the petals and leaves with a Blender Pen.
We mixed media on this piece too.
At CAS Watercolour we are doing birthday cards this month.
There are so many gorgeous birthday cards in the gallery.
Hope to see yours there too!
Challenge closes on the 24th.
