Nature Walk- Two Challenges in One!
I wanted to create one more card this weekend and the HSSTC110 Watercolor Technique Challenge has been on my mind all week and I decided to combine this technique with the FMS27 Freshly Made Sketch.
Again, both sites provide so much inspiration between their wonderful Design Teams and the entries each week- if you have a chance, stop by and see for yourselves!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of Watercolor Paper and stamp the images from Nature Walk with Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder, heat with the Heat Tool. Once the embossing powder has cooled, color the images with Watercolor Pencils and the Aqua Painter.
Punch the egg image with the 1 ¼” and 1 3/8” Circle Punches, use the 1 ¼” Punch for the bee and “fussy cut” the bird image.
Ink the background stamp, En Français with Bashful Blue Classic Ink and stamp onto Bashful Blue cardstock. Direct apply Bashful Blue Classic Ink onto the smooth interior side of the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and emboss with the Big Shot™.
Huff onto the ink on the background stamp and stamp the punched pieces. Mount the circles onto Basic Black cardstock.
Crimp a strip of Basic Black cardstock using the Crimper Tool. Apply the 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon bow over the embossed background layer, add the crimped layer of Basic Black cardstock, adhere the strip of blue Satin Ribbon, mount the circle images with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the sentiment to finish off the card.
