Good morning! Sherry here today and I have a 5x7 watercolor card to share with you. I used the Art Gone Wild set, Esther’s Garden by Catherine Scanlon Designs. I also embossed, which goes along with this month's ePlay Challenge - Embossing.
The flower was stamped and embossed in gold on watercolor paper and then water colored with Distress Ink Refills (listed below in Project Supplies).
After the image dried, Snowcap Pigment Ink was stippled to the background using TCW 6x6 Stencil, Well Rounded. In the photo above, you can see the stenciled design on the bottom left and in the photo below, you can see it on the top of the card.
The edges of the water colored image was sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink, which made the Snowcap stenciling pop out. The seam binding ribbon was dyed with Barn Red Distress Ink with a dab or two of Antique Linen.
As a final touch, the edges of both the image and background panels were edged in a gold leafing pen. As an extra tip, it is very important that after you dye ribbon, to wipe away the excess on your craft sheet. I failed to do so! When I was adding the foam adhesive to the back of the panels, they picked up some of the red ink from the craft sheet. I actually kind of liked the look when it was all said and done, so I let it be part of the design.
That’s it for me today . . . thanks for stopping by!
