DSC_0876-2I have two cards to share with you today.  The first was actually quite difficult to photograph due to the soft colors, so I apologize for the poor quality!

I first started by inking up the large rose from our Brush Art Floral stamp set with Coral Berry ink, then gave it two light spritzes of water.   I then stamped it onto watercolor paper for a lovely hand-painted look!  I followed the same procedure with the leaves using Frayed Leaf ink.

DSC_0868-2Next, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Painted Greetings set with WOW!’s gorgeous Metallic Gold Superfine embossing powder.  I love that beautiful shine!  The watercolor panel was then mounted to a kraft card base with foam tape.

DSC_0870-2My second card features the moon image from To the Moon which I stamped in two shades of grey ink, then topped it off with WOW!’s Diamond White Embossing Glitter.

DSC_0871-2To accompany the sparkly moon, I embossed the sentiment (from Painted Inspiration) with Silver Pearl embossing powder.  To add stars, I randomly drew dots onto the black card base with a white gel pen.
