Dear Friend- Pretty Water Coloured Card

 I have a pretty note card for you today.

Such a quick and simple project , yet I love it. You could easily make up a batch of these to give as a gift or make a quick card when you are pushed for time.

I have used the beautiful blooms Stamp Set and stamped and heat embossed the flower image in White on the water colour paper. I have then used my ink pads as a paint palate and water coloured using an aqua painter. (water filled brush). This is so lovely to do! The water colour paper ensures you can easily shade areas and the embossed areas help "keep" the colour where it is meant to go. My card was inspired by a beautiful one sent to me by The talented Anna Krol for a #randomactofkindness. She makes such lovely things. Do go and take A look at her blog at Anna Stampin Cave. 

This is how I made it:

I tried it with Clear embossing but felt it was too pale.

I also tried it in copper embossing. I like it but prefer it in the white.

I stamped "Dear Friend" from the set inside the card and repeated the process of embossing and water colouring inside the card with the small bloom and also on the envelopes. I love to have something on my envelopes!

Card Base: Whisper White notecard
Card Layer : Wild Wasabi
Card Layer Water Colour Paper
