Thanks, sweet friend
Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a card I made for a sweet friend to thank her for all her support. I had a lot of fun colouring this and thinking of her the whole time. :) Thanks Barb!
My CAS Mix Up card has die-cuts, stamping, heat embossing, watercolouring and splattering, but is still a CAS (clean and simple) design.
I heat embossed the leaves in liquid platinum (love this colour) onto mixed media paper and then watercoloured using three colours of Zig Clean Color Real Brushes. I die-cut the leaves from matching dies.
I scribbled two of those same colours of Zigs onto my mat, spritzed with water and then splattered the background to create a soft backdrop for my leaves. I'm happy with how it turned out. A simple, small black banner heat embossed in liquid platinum finishes the card.
Our challenge is open until June 24th at midnight (PDT), so there's lots of time to play along. Hope to see you in the gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by.
