Wild Flower Water Color

Hi all, I have been in water color mood lately and even though it doesn't look like it I do have quilling projects in the works, but they are not finished yet. One is a quilled card and the others are Keepsake Wedding Invitations and I will post them as soon as I get them finished. In the meantime I will post the cards that I enjoy making (relatively instant gratification on a finished project, YKWIM?). If you want to see any tutorials on any technique, quilling or anything, let me know. You can either comment or email me at the link in the sidebar.

I love my Me & Carrie Lou stamps which this card features. The image was stamped and embossed in gold embossing powder then water colored with Tombow markers in Jerri K's technique and style. I cut it out and edged it where the water color paper showed with a 24Kt pen. It is popped up with dimensionals on a lightweight piece of white card stock that I ran though my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I must be going through a "bold" color phase because that is what I seem to be choosing lately! But I do love a beautifully soft and subtle pastel or classic white/gold combination for cards also and have some designs in mind to do.

The sentiment is stamped and embossed in gold and is the "Aaronic Blessing" Numbers 6:24-26, which is layered Nesties and popped up. I made this card for the mother of my bff since grade school, who will be 89 this year! This sweet and generous lady, and my friend, rescued me in a difficult time of my life and I will never forget what they did for me, or my bff's non-stop friendship to this day!

And, I have another picture to show you. It is of the BLOG CANDY that I won from Lisa Phillippi's challenge (see sidebar for the link to her site). It was such a surprise because I didn't know what it would be! The sunflowe card is a similar one that she had made and posted on an online forum we both are member of (StampTV). I loved it and said to my self, "I wonder where the other half of that flower is?" Well, now I know, it's right here in my hand! It is really a cute design and I love polka dots! There were some cute flower stamps and I have a card in mind to use them on. Also some neat clear card boxes, gift boxes to decorate and flowers! Neat Blog Candy, Thanks Lisa!
