Hi, thanks for popping in....I used one of my sunset photos as inspiration for the background watercolouring on my card today
A couple of days ago I shared a card made with this embossing folder and the technique to stamp directly onto the EF and mentioned that I did a few prints as I did enjoy the effect.
Stamped the image onto the EF in black, ran it through the Cuttlebug and then watercoloured the background with Distress Inks. I decided to frame this image ... so used my largest oval die with white card and then ran that through the Cuttlebug with a dotty EF to break the starkness. To finish I used a burnt red/orange card and stamped the sentiment on a strip and heat embossed in black, mounted this with foam tape and added some hand cut reeds.
I am playing along with Watercooler Wednesday WWC304 - Kath's challenge - All About Occasions .... also another card for Let's Squash It challenge #4 - Embossing folder and Animal. .... and for The Die Cut Diva's January theme - Frame It
Have a wonderful creative weekend
