Embossing and Watercolor.


     This was pure playtime.  Embossing white on white is such a great technique, and I never think of it!  Enter some nice, juicy watercolor paints and you never know what will happen.  My stamps are from Unity Stamp, which I won in a grab bag.  Card stock is In the Navy and Lipstick Red, from Gina K. Designs.  I added a couple of little red heart punches from SU!, and crystal gems as embellishments.  My sentiment was stamped with Memento ink.

     I would like to enter this over at Cards in Envy, where the challenge is red and blue.  Also at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for their Fantastic Florals Challenge.

     Thanks for visiting and hope your week is perking along smoothly.

What an amazing card, Mary Anne!! I love how you made your background and I too always forget about doing this technique and it's one I learned many moons ago! It adds so much to a card! Love your sweet sentiment and heart punches! The sparkle from the rhinestones is what caught my eye....love the bling, bling! Love, love, love!! TFS and have a wonderful day! :)

Beautiful!! I keep wanting to do the white on white and then use my distress inks but haven't yet. Love the way you added the little hearts and gems, just the perfect little touch! Have a great day!
