Hello again, Blog Friends! I finally finished my cards for the Caring Hearts Card Drive, and thought I would jump into a few challenges before the doors close ~
This month, the CAS Watercolor Challenge theme is to use text on our card (other than the sentiment). Here is my card:
I was eager to include the copper butterfly (a gift from my sweet friend, Loll), and embossed the text, sentiment and flourish with copper embossing powder. I also watercolored the background with Peerless Watercolors, and created the aperture with my new MFT frame dies. A stitched border to finish it off, and that was it!
The French Script is an old unmarked stamp, and the PTI flourish is not listed in the store at this time, so they are not included in the Inlinkz below.
Last month I missed the deadline, and I'm getting in right under the wire for Virginia's View Challenge. The theme is stripes and plaid, and I couldn't be happier to use some of my PTI striped papers for this card:
I used another new MFT die to create the angle on this card, and watercolored the flower and leaves from my favorite Winnie & Walter stamp set.
That's it for me today...I hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start! Thanks so much for stopping by ~
