Another quickie card in the works today. Just found out some wonderful news from a family I know out-of-state and I wanted to send a note off immediately. What quicker way is there than to pull out my Nuance watercolors, embossing powder and die cutting machine!
Inked with VersaMark; embossed with white embossing powder onto watercolor card stock. Misted with water and shook Nuance in several places. With a wet watercolor brush, moved the colors around. Blotted with a paper towel; heat set.
Die cut card base and card panel. Stamped sentiment with Memento ink; die cut. Also die cut fun foam with smaller nesting label die to mount with. Set droplets at bottom in red; also set 3 small droplets in lighter color in areas on top half of card.
Quick & easy!

On the Memory Box blog, Bibiana has created this background with alcohol inks on glossy card stock. what I liked is she uses a pressurized can of air to move the alcohol inks around instead of blowing air through a straw. Read on . . .

I developed a bad case of "virus" last night and after that quick repair, I now need to go back in and do some heavy-duty house cleaning. I'll see you tomorrow!
