Always & Forever

Hello, every one! =) Here is one more card for The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.


I first clear embossed the flowers and leaves from Always & Forever set by Simon Says Stamp on the wrong side (smoother side) of the watercolor rectangle. I then picked up colors directly from the tips of Inktense colored pencils with a water brush and colored the embossed images.


The sentiment from the same stamp set is stamped with Onyx Black pigment ink. Just a bit more of red showing at the bottom from the card base to anchor the watercolor piece.

That's all for now. Have a beautiful day, my friends! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
