The challenge at Impression Obsession is "You Did It!" & it's about to close. I do need a card for hubby's grandson who is graduating from high school this year. The school colors are purple & gold, so I began my using the Watercolor Smooshing technique with Distress Ink dusty concord on a strip of heavy weight white cardstock. I purposely allowed for a bit of white to show. After drying it with my heat gun I gold embossed the IO star (may be discontinued) & mounted the panel to my card front. The sentiment from IO Follow Your Heart was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black. I used a VersaMark pen & the same gold embossing powder to color in the 2 words. This quote seems so appropriate for someone embarking on the rest of their life where making choices is no longer up to parents. I know teenagers make choices, but it's different after you finish high school. I added one additional trimmed out star & the Happy Graduation will go inside.
Our first Rhododendron has bloomed, so thought I'd share a picture.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
