Good morning friends! I am always excited when I actually get to play along with the PTI blog hop, instead of just cruising the gallery and gawking! I am stoked to share today...I did more water coloring and that means I am getting more brave!!
I used the current Retro Sketch for the layout for my card, a sketch is always a great place to start, don't you agree! And I loved this sketch...so it was a fun card to make! The challenge for the hop today is Gloss!! I loved this inspiration photo...and kind of got stuck on the beautiful green colors...and who can resist a pop of peacock feather blue!?
I pulled out my distress inks to help me with my water coloring fun--smooshed the ink pad onto an acrylic block, added a few mists of water and then stamped the acrylic block onto my watercolor paper...WAY fun!! And I couldn't think about it too hard...which is perfect for me! I also colored the butterfly that same way--acrylic block smooshing!
I used Fabulous Frames--and the photo makes it hard to tell, but it was embossed with clear embossing powder so it is super glossy, as is the butterfly! I used the Happy Birthday from 'Be Happy' and think this is SUCH a perfect birthday sentiment...perfection in a font is what I think!! I added a few little black hearts that were coated with glossy accents and yes, they are super glossy too!!
Thanks a bundle for stopping by today friends!! If you didn't see my post for the new Blossom Cupcards To Go kit...scroll down and take a peek! The kit is FANTASTIC! I will share the rest of my cards from the kit tomorrow...see you soon!!
Have a great one friends...and take care!
