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?
