Hello! Sharing a FUN card using the Mardi Gras stamps and dies from Avery Elle! This set just screamed for me to use a watercolor medium that I have had FOREVER called Watercolor Palette: Stargazers. This medium is just fantastic and shimmery! Perfect to celebrate a Mardi Gras birthday.
I began by black heat embossing all my images onto Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper and using the coordinating dies to cut. Once done, I used a brush from the Ranger Artist Brushes to drop color into my images. The best thing about it being embossed is that the embossing keeps your watercolor "in place" until dry. My background was done by sponging Wilted Violet and Lucky Clover Distres Inks. As a last detail, shimmer spray was added over my sponged background. The picture below captures the shine and shimmer perfectly!!!
Thank you soo much for spending a part of your day with me!!!
