To create this card:

  1. Watercolor puddles of color onto a quarter sheet of watercolor paper, heat setting between each color to avoid muddying
  2. Allow to dry completely, and trim to desired size (if necessary, iron to flatten by sandwiching between clean scrap paper; NO STEAM!)
  3. Die cut Bold Blossoms from heavy white card stock and mount as shown to watercolored panel
  4. White emboss sentiment onto piece of vellum card stock; staple to watercolored panel, atop the die cuts
  5. Mat previous layers with patterned paper; mount completed panel to an A-2 (4.25 x 5.5″) card made from white woodgrain card stock
  6. Embellish with enamel dots

 

I’m a bit over the moon with this release–put a lot of my favorites into it…

I also feel kinda dumb… I was so busy working behind the scenes on sooooo many other things relating to the release, I totally froggot (that is a made up word) to INCLUDE myself in the hop. *smacks forehead* So, thanks for hanging in there and seeing it aaaaaallll the way thru to me! :)

Have you enjoyed the hop? I just love how different everybody’s take has been… and I feel pretty doggone lucky to have these talented peeps sharing their mad skillzzz with this release…  *verklempt*

My creative article for the February newsletter posted–this was an especially fun one for me, as I love to play with a single product and come up with lots of ideas for it.

You can read more of the details in the article, archived here> In Touch: SAME DIES, FOUR LOOKS   And, there are some cool tips in the video–be sure to watch! *wink*

I know.  Seems like most of my card bases are white.  But, I can’t help it; they really make me happy–like INCREDIBLY happy! :)  Such a little thing… but it’s the little things that make life big, right?! :)

Happy day!
