This week the Wednesday Challenge over at Simon Says Stamps is “Add a Sentiment.” The products to feature this week are Impression Obsession.
My options were limited as I only have one stamp set from Impression Obesession. However this is a lovely set with a fabulous sentiment!
Here is my card, featuring Zenspiration Butterflies.
I stamped the image and sentiment on Ranger Distress Watercolor paper in Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder. I did this because I knew I was going to color the images with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Pearlescent watercolor paints, and my Perfect Pearls powders. I started off with the Perfect Pearls on the flower. I didn’t remember the colors being so dark, so I did touch them up with the Gansai Tambi watercolors to lighten them up. I used just the watercolor paints on the butterfly. Then I did a watercolor wash on the background with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
Look at all the shimmer from the paints and Perfect Pearls!
I finished off the card with Aquatic Mist Nuvo Glitter drops, and some Morning Dew drops on the flower.
I made a card base with MFT Sno Cone cardstock and that completes my card for this week’s Wednesday challenge.
I love that sentiment! Its so strong and encouraging. This is a great card to give to a friend.
Thanks for stopping by!
