For today's card, I started out by grabbing some watercolor paper. I stamped the image down with embossing ink. Then I applied the Blush Pearl embossing powder and heat embossing. I prefer to heat emboss whenever I play with watercolor techniques and stamping. The darker areas on the seashell are where I colored with the real brush pen. And then I used my water brush to spread the color out. The sentiment was die cut out of some papers from my scrap pile. Before die cutting the word. I ran the cardstock through my Xyron. That is because when it comes to intricate or detailed die cuts. I prefer to have them already be sticky, rather than applying adhesive to the back. Then I put the card together, by gluing the watercolor paper to my card base. Next, I brought out some hemp twine. And to curl the twine, I wrapped it around my water brush.
The seashell is my day 15 coloring. I have been playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. Have you? I would have to say it's been great motivation.
