Thank you for calling back to visit.
I made this card for a commission, and the customer wanted names on the cards I was making. this card is for a 15 yr old girl.
I started by trying out my brushos again, and this time I loved the results I got. I also sprinkled on some silver embossing powder before the watercolour paper was dry, and heated it to make the powder melt - it gives a gorgeous effect once it is all dry.
I have a new Alpha set from Couture Creations that gives both upper and lower case letters, so I cut the name of the recipient out of a glitter card, and mounted it over the base, using washi tape to give me a straight line to place the letters on.
The greeting is a digi from Beccy's Place - I am not sure if it was a freebie, or in a set that has been discontinued, but I cannot find it on the site. I die cut it with a S/B label, sponged it with pale blue ink and sprayed it with silver shimmer spray. The brads were silver, so I coated them with Versamark ink and dipped them into blue embossing powder and heated them. I love colouring them that way.
The silhouette is also a digi from Beccy's Place from a set called Splish Splash and again it is the first time I have used it - I sized it to suit the card, printed it and then fussy cut it. It reminds me of a group of young teens, reluctant to part, and giggling together as only they can do.
The card was finished by mounting the panel over a panel of the blues glitter card, and then an aqua toned base. The customer loved the card.
