You're a Gem!

Hello everyone!
Did you get to check out the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Blog Hop that started yesterday?  I was a part of the celebration and you can see that post HERE and check out the chance to win goodies from SSS!!

I'm having so much fun watercoloring some backgrounds for my cards.....you will definitely see more of them soon!  I worked with the Thanks a Million stamp set from the new Whimsy Stamps release last week.  I started with white heat embossing the watercolor cardstock with the sentiment Thanks.  I then smooshed Salty Ocean Distress Ink onto my craft mat and spritzing liberally with water.  Taking my watercolor panel, I dragged it through all the watered down color on my craft mat until I had it the color I wanted.  I sped up the process by using my heat tool to dry that panel.

I love this little sentiment 'you're a gem'!  My gem (hand cut out)  is colored with a light gray Copic and a thick layer of glossy accents was applied over the top.  Some silver cording and clear sequins finish off the card!
