Best Friends

Howdy Crafters - Here is a technique I learned recently - take a stamp - use Versamark Embossing ink - stamp it on watercolor paper - then get out those watercolors and start coloring. Add Distress inks along with the water colors if you wish- I created my own background with water colors as well... I am liking these two girlfriends - arm in arm taking a walk toward the lake [yes one is in jeans and the other is wearing a dress]  ~ thanks for dropping by - blessings, Gail

Recipe
White cardstock for base of card
Black Cardstock for mat
Spellbinders Rectangle Dies
Cuttlebug
Watercolor Cardstock for stamping image
Pearlescent Watercolors
Versamark Embossing ink to stamp the Best Friends Clear Stamp on card - Heat gun used to quickly dry the watercolors so I could stamp the sentiment - Best Friends with the Misti,  and finish up the card.  The Cloud is a Fiskar punch used for masking.

 It would be an honor to share with

  1. Like the wonderful artsy look of this. Reminds me of fond memories of growing up E coast of FL. No lake near me here in Central TX.
