watercolour Congrats | #tgifc06

This is a special card for my friend Catherine!
She just had a new baby Isabella and she's about 2 weeks old now.
It's been a long long long wait not to mention stressful so when she arrived in this world, I couldn't be happier. Only problem is that she lives 6 hours away so I am storing up all my cuddles for July.

Its actually a water colour challenge at TGIF challenges!

The first step is to use water colour paper.  The next step would be to emboss a stamp on the cardstock with white embossing powder. Then I used my blackberry bliss re-inker to create the watercolour effect.  I put a couple drops on my kraft mat.  I sprayed tons of water then I used my aqua painter to colour the page.

But my most favourite part of the card is sewing the new lace trim on the top.  I used the taupe colour.  ahhhhh.  love love love it.  I didn't think I'd like Tip Top Taupe but man, its hitting me hard (like blackberry bliss last year).

And now I am off to continue the chaos.  

How did it become June already?


  1. The beauty of your cad speaks for itself! Don't add a bunch of words to your post to distract from it..LOL! Seriously, the colouring :-)

  2. What a great effect you have created with the watercoloring.
