PDCC111


Does it happen to you that when you wanted so much to design a card according to the requirement but you just can't create.  I love this color combo and have been trying hard to create a card since the first day that it was posted.  Now, 10 hours before the dateline, I managed to come up with something - phew!


For this card, I used PB Lace Edged and HA Antique Butterflies which are stamped with distress ink in black soot and broken china, spritz with water and stamped onto watercolor paper.  Once it's dry, I heat embossed it in clear powder.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  I also dry embossed on the corner of the inner panel.

This card also enters into the following challenge : CAS-ual Fridays, Ellen Hutson - Take 'n Make with Hero Arts, CASE Study

The colour combination is refreshing and clean and it has a vibrancy Lai-Yoke, your watercolour technique is just perfect, and the design of the card has wonderful interest, your little touch of dry embossing gives the card such dimension.

Gorgeous card, Lai-Yoke- even though you must have been frustrated the end project is so worth it! I love the shadow-effect, and the partial dry embossing looks so neat :)

The effect of the distress ink, water & then the clear embossing is very pretty.
