Easter Wishes

Time for a new game over at AAA Cards! Come play with us and crete an Easter Themed Project!! The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to Happy Little Stampers!



I tried something new, and I think I need some more practice. The idea is to use an embossing folder on a piece of watercolor paper. Gently rub a VersaMark ink pad over the raised image and heat emboss with white or clear embossing powder. Then apply watercolor to the depressed areas. I was going for lots of springy, Easter eggy colors, and something out of the ordinary. I used my Kuretake water colors and a water brush to apply the color. The jury in my mind is still out on this one, but it was an interesting project. Is it too playful for such an elegant embossed design? What do you think??


In any case, please head on over to the AAA Cards blog, see what my talented DT members have come up with and leave them some love.  Then get your Easter/Spring juices flowing and play with us. 
Thanks for coming by today. Your comments make my day!

I DO like this card very much and hope to attempt it soon so thank you for your insight on how you created it. I don't really see it as an Easter card but then, I am old and tend to be more traditional with holiday thoughts, colors, and images.

This is a real show stopper. The bright colors against the white are wonderful.
