Good Monday morning!  I hope y’all had a great weekend and stayed out of trouble.  I know I did!  On Saturday I drove with Mom and Aunt Linda, down to the country for my Great-Aunt’s 80th Birthday party.  On Sunday Mallory and I hopped in the car, drove up to get Katie, and then we wandered around Art in Speed Park for a couple of hours.  Good times!

I have a fairly simple card to show you today.  Now before you even begin to say this can’t be simple . . . truly it was!

The image, from Wplus9 Design Studio, was embossed with clear embossing powder and then water colored with Distress Ink Refills . . . Faux Bleach/Batik Technique.  The ink refills are still my favorite medium to watercolor with . . .


The image was then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty-Five.  For the kraft layer behind the image, and because I didn’t want an extra amount of paper edging, I traced the same die template onto the kraft cardstock and trimmed it out with scissors.  The edges were sponged with Jasmine Mix’d Media Inx.

The layered panel behind the image was die cut/embossed with the new Card Marker A2 Matting Basics die templates.  The corners were die cut/embossed with the corner die template from Lace Doily Accents.

See I told you, it really is a pretty simple card!  The image took me longer to watercolor than it did to make the card.

That’s all I’ve got for you today.  Hopefully I’ll have a tangle for you tomorrow . . . we’ll have to see how the rest of my day unfolds.  In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and remember  . . . life is short, make the most of the adventures that come your way today!

  9. Please Please do a video on this for us to see in real time. It does look hard. I don’t think I would try unless I saw how it was done. LOL I’m chicken!!!

  10. Gorgeous colouring Sherry. Distress inks are wonderful for watercolouring. I’ve not used my reinkers for this but I usually use the colours straight from the pad onto a white tile so the colours are true (the craft mat works but dulls down the vivid colour until you transfer it onto white, so it’s difficult to guage what you have before you paint with it). Really beautiful card, love the faux bleach stamping look too.

  11. Geez, this is so gorgeous, Sherry!! I love the vibrancy of the flowers so much!!!
