The technique I used on this card is something that I did YEARS ago. I white embossed the image on vellum the image I wanted to color. When I owned markers, I would color from the back side the image for the muted color. Today, I used my stamp pad and my new watercolor brush from Tim Holtz and watercolored on the top. I like the orange, yellow and pink combo. The stamps are by The Stamps of Life mums2stamps. I used the Momento Dew Drop stamp pads for the color. And I finally got my Hero Arts white embossing powder.
I am using the sketch from Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge 205 . I love their sketches. It really makes card making easy. And the samples are adorable. I never have to guess on the measurements. The possibilities are endless. This card will be added to the pile that will be sent for our heroes.
I don't want the card to be 'naked' on the inside, so I echoed the same colors and used the tiny mum stamp from the same set in the pink. I sponged some orange, but it's hard to tell in the pics.
Happy New Year to ALL!!
