Missing You - Challenge

Wow, it has been a busy few days.  Hopefully things will settle down shortly.  I did make it to the tennis courts today.  Had a nice time with Marilee with some hitting practice early this morning.  But, it is Tueday and I miss hitting with my husband.  Hopefully, he'll make it back to the court shortly! Of course, there is women's world cup soccer playing in the background...go Spain!

I decided to enter into another CASE this sketch Challenge #126.  I figured this gives me the opportunity to use some of my favorite techniques:  heat embossing and watercoloring with distress inks! Here's what I came up with...

I heat embossed the flowers, then painted them with Distressed Ink.  I feel like an artist whenever I use this technique.  I just love the flowers in this color.  I then added some dimension with the purple cardstock.

  • Watercolor Paper
  • Bazzill Card stock:  Gummy Bear
  • Penny Black Stamps:  Dahlia
  • Versamark Ink
  • Hero Arts White Embossing Powder
  • Distressed Ink:  Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar
  • Avery Elle Pigment Ink:  Fog
  • Paper Smooches Saluations Stamps
