"You Are an Angel"
Welcome to the first day of the June Hop at Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a HC! Today's feature is "Need a Vacation". For my first card I heat embossed the flower then pressed distress ink directly on craft mat. I used two colors: TH Mustard Seed and Victorian Velvet. I should have used more Victorian Velvet because you can barely see it on the lower right petal. I spritzed the ink with water and then placed my panel over the wet ink. After it was dry I sponged the edges with Victorian Velvet to mellow out the yellow a bit. Mustard Seed is REALLY bright! :)
For my second card I used a different water color technique. I used TH distress markers and water.
Thanks for looking! Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win today's release! I hope you will visit my teammates blogs to view their fabulous inspiration for today's feature!
