Delight in the Beauty of the Day

 Edited June 2015
Thanks to Great Impressions for choosing my card.

Wow, I am here for the second time today. I have been playing all day, in my craft room. I found that if I enter challenges, I get some "one of a kind" cards made. I figured that I may use this challenge to get my Mothers Day card made. I have a few Great Impressions stamps, so I decided to dive right in and take the April challenge.You can find the Great Impressions challenge HERE.

My main paper was watercolor paper. To make the background, I spritzed my watercolor paper and let the water soak in for a few minutes. Meanwhile, I inked my embossing folder with some yellow , pink and green, then I embossed with the wet paper. This watercolor paper has a blue-grey tint. Then I watercolored Lizzy and fussy cut her out. I used black embossing on the vellum. So, that's my card. Thanks for stopping by...
