MIM #153 and CC #4 and NBUS

I really love the water coloring technique and have been playing around with it.  The challenge for PTI's Make it Monday is a water color background with an embossed sentiment.  The link will take you to Dawn McVey's video that explains the how to.


The Card Concept has a floral theme this week so I decided to combine the two challenges.


I used the NBUS PTI Circle Scribbles to make my flowers, stamped in Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.  Using an aqua brush, I moved the ink around, added more, and filled in the center with Mustard Seed.  After stamping the sentiment from HA and embossing, I used Peeled Paint to make the background, adding a couple of leaves that are barely visible in the photo.  I need a lot of sympathy cards to replenish my stash so I may be making a few more of these.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.
