Watercolor Wedding Wishes!

Howdy!  So I know this layout is almost the same as yesterdays but I love it.  I changed up the elements a little.  I started with Rustic Cream cardstock from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the striped scalloped circle from Hero Arts with the Tea Dye Duo light ink from PTI.  Then the Text Style stamp from PTI in the darker of the tea dye duo ink.  I embossed the flower from the PTI in copper embossing powder along with the greeting.  Then I watercolored the flower with my watercolor crayons from Stampin Up and a waterbrush.  Lastly I ruffed up the edge and rubbed the tea dye ink along the edge and mounted it on a Rustic Cream card base.
Simon Says Stamp is having an "April Flowers" challenge and PTI Make-It-Monday is having a watercoloring/embossing challenge.

Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Travel...who me??

Happy Saturday to you!  So first I need to address the title.  We don't travel, my husband and I.  He likes to stay home or at least in our state.  So travel is a foreign concept in our house.  I started with the Playdate #177 colorway and the CASology "travel" cue card.

My card uses a Martha Stewart world travel set and Stampin Up inks.  Cardstock is all from Papertrey Ink.

So as you can see my destination is my hubby.  Thanks for stopping by today!

CFC136 and MIM111

Good evening!  My title reminded me of some code being typed out tonight.  I must be staring at computer code to much lately.  So tonight's card used embossing and watercoloring.  I saw the CASE Study card for the week below and decided to used the same color pallet to create a water color background.  I started by embossing the thank you with clear powder over black ink on Papertrey white cardstock.  Then took my water color crayons(SU) and a waterbrush to paint the background.
Trimed the block down to 3 3/4 by 5" when dry and mounted it onto a PTI white card base.  The card below was my inspiration.


Thanks for stopping.  Sweet dreams to you!

April Showers bring Spring Flowers???

Hey all!  I bet you thought I had dropped off the face of this earth...well almost.  My husband has had 3 surgeries in 3 months and my dad has gone to spend eternity with God.  Busy time in our lives.  So it really felt good to spend a little time stamping tonight.  Just to play with ink and paper makes me happy.  The card below is a favorite technique of mine it is to layer images to create a collage effect.  Papertrey Ink had it as a challenge last week and there was just no time to stamp so I thought it would work with this weeks challenge also that is "watercoloring over embossing".
