For You

Hi all!  I was reorganizing some things in my craft room this weekend and came across a bunch of a muse|studio products I haven’t used in a long time and some new stuff I just got.  I came up with this card:


The silhouette is from Beautiful Botanicals 2 and the sentiment is from Aren’t You Sweet.  I stamped the flower with Versamark ink and embossed with Hero Arts white EP on a piece of watercolor paper.  Then I sponged some Distress Inks over the whole panel and spritzed with water to get a watercolor look and blend.  The result was somewhat faded looking so I repeated the process to make the colors a little brighter.  After drying with my heat tool, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I took a little scrap of watercolor paper and applied some wet Distress Inks to it and punched out a Martha Stewart butterfly.  I added a|s pearls and bits of black paper.  The black dotted cardstock is retired a|s and the twine is also from a|s.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and this is also for Virginia's View Challenge – watercoloring.  I hope you like it and TFL!


  1. Hello, Maureen! Your card is so pretty! The shading around the flower shows depth and interest! So glad that you join the fun with the first Virginia's View Challenge!
