Here is card #3 and was originally a mistake I thought was going to go into the trash... BUT we never give up!
For this card I started with Canson XL Watercolor paper and used Oxide Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick to create a watercolor background. I them stamped three of the individual flowers from the kit with VersaMark Ink so I could emboss the images in gold... and here is where the eye opener happened!
Now yes, I waited for the watercolor to dry and forgot to use my anti-static pouch... When I poured the gold powder over my image, it actually stuck to some areas within the background. I set the card aside and thought I would have to completely re-do the design...
I came back to the base and started to go with it and I pulled out my VersaMark pen and continue to add to the markings within the background and embossed them as well... I loved it!
Placed a black stripe behind my sentiment chosen and popped the based onto the
4 1/4" x 5 1/2" black top folding card base.
I find it difficult to let mistakes go and remember, we create handmade items and what we may think are errors or mistakes adds to your creation's charm!
I hope you enjoy! Talk Soon!

Since about the time I spoke my first word, I’ve been an avid crafter alongside my mom and sister. You name the craft and I’ve probably made it and collected it. I simply find so much joy in working with my hands and seeing a happy customer with one of my creations. There’s nothing better! But I also love helping people become stronger and seeing them find THEIR happy through THEIR creations.
