|Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge|
I began by watercoloring first on Aquarelle watercolor paper. Then I cut the panel down and heat embossed the an array of blooms and leaves from Peonies on Parade onto the watercolor panel using white embossing power. I also used the watercolor panel to emboss the 'Birthday' sentiment.
My dilemma all day long was the background for the card. White was too bright, and the flowers simply faded into the background. I must have tried dozens of combinations until I finally decided to sponge the colors I wanted. I used the Stitched Rectangles die to cut out the 'frame' and sponged it with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink. So glad I made it well before the deadline. I was beginning to wonder if I'd make it!
The challenge is open until 11:30 p.m. ET today, so there's still time to join the fun!!
