CASEing Marcia

Hi everyone.  Today I'm CASEing this beautiful card made by my friend, Marcia (Marcia's Stampin' Pad).  Thank you for the inspiration, Marcia!!

I just loved her design, and I happened to have the heart die-cut that she used for the background and hadn't used it yet. :)  I used a watercoloured panel (done on mixed media paper) that I smooshed with re-inkers and spray starch and then pressed cling wrap over top.  It has a very subtle design.

I added a simple white die-cut leaf sprig, white embossed sentiment and three Nuvo Jewel Drops in Rosewater.

Thanks for coming by for a visit.  I hope you'll find some time to check out Marcia's blog.

Adding this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

I love how you took her card and made it your own with your soft, subtle background. Love the layer over the die cut, an idea that would never have occurred to me. This turned out beautiful, Loll!
