I need to make Easter cards to send to my family, and I love to use purple and green. I remembered when I used some Sweetwater papers last August to make these cards.
I used my Scor-It to create a dry embossed frame around the flower. I layered on a scrap of purple, then on mellow moss cs, which I paper pierced and popped up on dimensionals. The gold sheer ribbon is May Arts, and I used my swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on the base card. The inks are SU mellow moss SU lovely lilac, and Encore gold pigment ink. I used gold embossing powder by Stampendous.
Here are my Sweetwater scraps
that were left before I started. The scraps are on a 12x12 sheet of paper. I used that one long striped piece to CASE Sharon. It looks like I will need to find some other dps for the rest of my Easter cards, or make some June Houck scrappy cards :)
TUTORIAL: These are the materials I used to faux watercolor.
1. Color the solid stamp (direct-to-rubber). I spritzed the stamp twice, then stamped lightly, and then again with more force.
2. Here are my two images. I can create two cards! Then I stamped the outline stamp with gold pigment ink, dusted with gold embossing powder, and heat embossed the image. Voila!
I really like this card! So pretty. Thank you, Sharon :)
