More Foolin' Around

Post time: London UK Time

Back on April 2, I posted a card using this same Magenta stamp. I used it again with a Nuance watercolored background, embossing and my Glaze pens.

Nuance watercolor powders to make background on watercolor card stock. Once dry, covered entire piece with "my embossing buddy" powder. Stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Colored in the fish with Glaze pens.

From the same watercolored paper, die cut the word "thanks", as well as from black Fun Foam. Put the black die cut underneath the colored one to provide a raised shadow effect.

Dry embossed white card stock with an embossing folder. Trimmed the stamped image square by hand; adhered to the embossed panel with Fun Foam. Used blue ink to lightly color area of dry embossing and then adhered the die-cut with glue. With double-sided adhesive, adhered the embossed panel to the card base.

On the Magenta blog, you'll want to see this particular card by Bianca van Noort. I love the brightly watercolored poppy flowers against the beautiful blue skies.

On the Hero Arts' blog, they're featuring a terrific "graduation" card, although it could be used for other celebratory occasions. I like how this particular die works and what May did to make it even more unique.

We're on Day #5 of our 10-day stay in London. To say we're having a fun-time with our 2 and 4 year-old granddaughters is quite an understatement. Today our 4 year-old granddaughter had school, an extra class and then ballet, followed by a play time along with her 2 year-old sister. We raced home and made cards for their daddy's birthday tomorrow; we had to finish and hide them before he came home from work. Thanks for understanding why the posts have been sparse lately.
