Lavender Wildflower Card

Hi all, here is the second card that I made for my aunt. I used my brand new Me & Carrie Lou wildflower stamp so that I could practice Jerri K's water color technique. The image was stamped and embossed in gold on water color paper and then I water colored it with Tombow markers. It has a lavender wash around the outside of the image but it isn't as dark as it should be, more practice!
The base card is a pretty pearlescent medium lavender and has a mottled lavender DP layered onto it. I cut the water color image out and used my 24kt gold leaf pen to edge it. The wild flower stamp is pretty alone but I had those little lavender punched flowers with pearl centers left over from a previous project and decided to accent the panel with them.
Finally I finished it with a darker purple bow and popped up the sentiment medallion with dimensionals. I still need more practice with this technique and if you want to see the "real thing" click on Jerri's blog link on the side bar, it is amazing! I have another card that I made today for a paper soul sisters blog challenge and I will post it tomorrow. Have fun with paper and scissors or the beautiful weather if you are luck enough to have it!
Until the next post,
Comments are always welcome, drop me a note!
