Just a Note

I send a lot of cards just to keep in touch with blogging friends, so that's what I made for the Impression Obsession challenge. Cards must have less than 3 layers not counting the card base.
I attached a strip of Heidi Swapp gold glitter tape to the side of an ivory card base.  The watercolor panel was done by repeatedly inking, spritzing & stamping IO Brush Tree (E7690) with Distress Inks using my Mini MISTI.  I added soft colors to the background using DIs & a water brush.  The sentiment is from IO Anytime Sentiments (CL43)--first time to use that great set. Finished off with splatters, 3 gold PPP sequins & some twine. I'm also entering CropStop & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  2. I love that gold strip of tape along the left side, it gives a fun bit of sparkle. That is a great way to watercolor the tree top. I never thought of doing it that way but it is so clever and came out so well. Another cool inspiration from you.
