Wednesday already! I like having Monday’s off! LOL! Today was another nice day, lots of sun and a little breeze. My day was pretty good, work wasn’t terrible, I got to drive home with the top down, my favorite way to end the work day! I came home and had some dinner and then retreated to the Stampin’ Galley to make a card. I ran out to Target quick to get a few things, I love that it’s open until midnight! Not a bad day at all!
Today I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew big for this week’s sketch challenge…
I wanted to use some new goodies and do a little watercoloring, it’s been a while since I have done that! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb. I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp on a piece of Whisper White with Sahara Sand Ink. Some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine is spattered on the panel and it’s adhered to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. I heat embossed the flower from the NEW You’ve Got This Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder twice. The watercoloring is done with So Saffron and Old Olive Ink and a wet brush. I cut out one with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Dies and the flower with my Paper Snips. Some Foam Tape adheres the flower to the circle and more SNAIL and Fun Foam adhere the circle to the card. A few butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches. I colored the back of the with a Copic Y35 Marker and the used Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhere them to the circle. My greeting is a piece of So Saffron and Neenah Solar White 80lb cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Thanks Die. I adhered the two die cuts together with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium and then adhere it to the card with Foam Tape. I love the soft look of the watercolored flower and cool gold butterflies against the Hardwood Background! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge!
