But, today is our day off, and I loved the softness to the color challenge colors over at SCS. Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink and Going Gray. I took some time this morning to make this card:
I started by embossing this gorgeous Poinsettia's from Flourishes with White Embossing Powder on Watercolor Paper. I then did a very light wash of watercolor with my Stampin' Write Markers (just one or two layers of color), and then trimmed the poinsettia and leaves out. The soft color with the white embossing is really pretty.
I used several Nestability shapes for accents, the new Fancy Tags, the Lattice Border and Labels Five (sponged with Sage Shadow).
I never have bought any Going Gray ink or papers, (GASP!), but I do have a Going Gray Marker, so I used that for the poinsettia center, shadows and the sentiment and gorgeous Flourish in the background on the Eskimo Kisses paper.
Here's a closeup of the watercoloring:
Alright, off to clean my stamping mess and spend some time with my husband. It's my last SU workshop tonight, and I'm feeling pretty sad today. The end of an era!
