Make-it-Monday #111 Watercoloring Embossed Images






Hello everyone, I always want to play along with Papertrey Ink, Make-it-Monday challenge but don't always find the time.  I guess today is my lucky day.  The challenge was watercoloring embossed images with Heather #111.  I have started to rethink on how much I want to put onto my card or how much I want to pay for postage. Last month release helped me change things a bit, that was a great release for me.  I have started to make simpler cards.  I have always loved all the buttons, bows, pearls, lace everything on the cards but now that I have changed, things got a lot easier.  The cards don't take as long to make, I don't have to worry about how bulky the card is for postage.  It does feel a little plain but it is growing on me.

I started out with the stamp set by Maile called Birthday Style.  I embossed the bubbles with white embossing powder and used Hibiscus Burst and Harvest Gold ink for a watercolor effect. I die cut the banner and again by Maile used the Bountiful Banners stamp set.

Have a really great day and I wish for warmer weather for everyone!

  5. I hear you, Nancy. Postage has gotten so expensive that I, too, have veered away from ribbon and buttons.
    Love, love, love the mix of colors in the background. This is truly a HAPPY birthday card.
