I am very pleased to be a guest in a crafty collaboration called Create Together with Marcie Sharp on her blog today. She just happens to be my very talented daughter and has been crafting for many years - I'm so very proud of her crafty accomplishments!!
Marcie sent me this beautiful inspiration photo for us to work with - I absolutely fell in love with it!
I definitely used the colours and glitter to create my card and I pulled out my Vintage Linens Stamp Set by Papertrey Ink (again - I can't get enough of those flowers!)
Embossing the images with white embossing powder is always a great beginning when water colouring. The watercolours stay where you put them - within reason of course - and the end result is so pretty!
I die cut the images after embossing and watercoloured with my Zig Real Brush Markers. I added some gold glitter in the middle with a gold Wink of Stella pen.
Using Mama Elephant Madison Avenue Frame Tags Creative Cuts (what a long name……) and DCWV Mat Stack glitter brights & neutrals, I die cut a frame from the blue glitter cardstock. I also die cut the frame using the gorgeous Papertrey Ink Gold Luxe Foil Patterned Paper Collection. - it is so shiny and…..Gold!!
I inlaid the middle panel of gold stripe into the blue glitter frame and adhered it to my white cardstock card base.
I stamped the sentiment, from Papertrey Ink Choose Joy stamp set onto the die cut tag and popped it up onto the gold striped cardstock. I popped up the flowers and added ribbon and some pretty gold glitter baubles to finish my creation.
Thank you for visiting today - and get out those water-colours and play!!
