How are you all doing tonight? I'm pretty good.
My days off rotate so eventually I get this awesome four day weekend that pops in out of no where. I just had that. It's awesome :)
Tonight I'm dropping by to share a card for the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Anything Goes.
I absolutely love that they give us a chance to win just for playing.
Again, awesome :)
I also have more heat embossing watercoloring for you. I may need to find a twelve step program. It looks different every time and I'm completely captivated by it!
I stamped the butterfly trail from Flap Happy in a circle creating this little flourish design that I love. I don't normally "do" square cards but this just didn't look right as an A2.
After I had everything heat embossed in white I started adding distress inks. I didn't want the background to be completely white so I laid down clean water in a circle shape and then added bits of color only at the edge of each flourish. I felt like it needed more contrast so I added some detail dots using a black glaze pen.
The happy birthday is from their Sentiment Sampler and was heat set in white. I added little dots of stardust stickles after each line of black dots for my sparkle.
What do you think? too much sparkle? Not enough?
Thanks for visiting! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you all!
