Just Puddling

Welcome and thanks for visiting - it's great to see you here.

The other day I was given a copy of the latest Papercrafts magazine, and was inspired by a card by Laura Pryor, where she scribbled on water-colour paper, and then misted it with water.  

I cased it and made this card

The card base was randomly stamped with a large snowflake stamp and Versamark.

The feature panel was made with water colour crayons scribbled on water colour paper and spritzed with water, and then sprayed with silver Glimmer Mist. One edge was torn to add texture.

The twine I used is from Layers of Color, and is somewhat different being purple with a gold strand through it.

I added a sentiment panel which was raised with a pile of foam dots.  The buttons were adhered with glue dots.  This last photo shows some of the glimmer on the feature panel.

I am linking this to: 

Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed.
