I do love my W&W Hello die, but I promise not to show it again--for a little while! The BD Bash challenges are about to end & I have one more card to enter. This one is for Two Challenge with Shay (2 sequins) & Color Challenge with Heather P. I blended the die with Distress Ink abandoned coral, PTI Limeade Ice & Distress Ink peacock feathers. Then I spritzed with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz Sparkle & oh my goodness--so gorgeous in real life!
"Spring" is from a beautiful The Craft's Meow set & is stamped in VersaMagic Gingerbread. I added a couple Ellen Hutson leaves die cut from vellum. The dry embossed frame is inspired by Virginia's card HERE. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & AAA Cards.
Another challenge about to end is Fabulous Flowers at Hero Arts. I recently watched Jennifer's video & wanted to try embossing with watercolor lifting. Since I happen to have Tombow markers (15 yrs old & stored in the back room) I pulled them out & they worked! HA Wild Flowers was stamped twice & clear embossed on the watercolored panel. Then I "lifted" color with water & the images appeared--so fun! Decided to try stamping over it with HA Friend Definition--a stamp I've had forever & barely used. The white embossed sentiment from HA Thinking of You Messages was die cut with a circle & mounted with foam tape. Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles provide the stitching & I finished off with some PPP Marshmallow sequins. This is going in the mail today to hopefully give a lift to a friend. I'm also entering SSS Monday, Freshly Made Sketches & SSS Work It Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking some of your blog reading time to visit me.
