Hi! I am just popping in today with a quick little card that I cased from Jennifer McGuire. I was inspired by a beautiful card that Jennifer made the other day and I wanted to try one for myself. If you don't follow Jennifer McGuire, you should! She is so talented and does AWESOME videos and tutorials! I embossed my floral image with white embossing powder and heat set it. Next, I spritzed my watercolor paper with water. Then I took my distress ink pads and applied them straight onto my craft mat and gave them a little spritz with water too. I then took a paintbrush and brushed over my embossed image. I dried it with my heat tool and then added some pearlized water and gave that a zap with my heat tool. Added my sentiment and mounted my panel onto a card base and voila! A clean and simple card. I love how the distress inks pop against the white embossing powder! Give it a try. Here is the card I CASED from Jennifer: http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2013/07/video-watercolor-stamp-your-story-blog-hop-giveaway.html
Yesterday I took 2 of my kids to the mall! YIKES, what was I thinking? My son needed some new clothes for college and my daughter decided she needed to come along too (she NEEDED nothing!!!) OUCH! Next time I think I definitely need to take one at a time, lol!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.
