Back to blogging ...

After over a year of not blogging, I am going to try it again. I enrolled in a class, Online Card Classes, and wanted to upload my card to their site.  I debated back and forth if I wanted to do this venture again. Well, here it goes ...

Stamps:  You (Simon Says Stamps)
Paper:  black (SU), teal, watercolor (Canson), vellum
Ink:  Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed (Distress Inks), Black (Versafine), Versamark
Accessories:  clear embossing powder, sequins, leaf die (Spellbinders)

I watercolored the background and die cut the leaves three times. After attaching the watercolored piece to the teal paper, I clear embossed the leaves and then put them back into their correct cutout with foam tape. The sentiments are also clear embossed.

This card was inspired by Kristina Werner's card over at Online Card Classes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hi Pam!!! So glad to see you again! Love the beautiful wash of color on your card and how you popped the leaves so that there is faint hint of the teal peeking through.

Hope the online card class is going well and you have fun learning new techniques!! Again, its great to see you pop up in my Feedly!!!

Hi there friend!
Love your watercolor card and I always peek in to see if you are still around. What a surprise to find you posted... I always think of you at this time year... Golf starts for me next week. Was supposed to be two weeks ago, but the weather has not cooperated yet. Ok by me... I'm a fair weather golfer.
Glad you're back in the blog world, however, I know it gets to be almost like a job. My posts go in spurts... but I don't really have a big following but hat okay. Mostly my friends.
Happy Summer! Diane
