ID: MC June/18 - Morning Glories W/C - ECD Smiles - Live Like The Gate Is Open - HB card
size: 5"w x 7"H

Created: June 13, 2018

A friend pointed me to a card done in watercolors and I really liked the look so checked it out...  Sandy Allnock "Bokeh Cherry Blossoms"

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Smiles"  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I 'm also using one of the newest stamps from Quietfire Design 

("Live Like Someone...") 

And on the inside using a clear stamp set from Quietfire Design "Birthday Collection" 8pce set also available on Elizabeth Craft Designs HERE



Stamped the morning glories (Stampendous "Morning Glory") 3 times using Versafine Black Onyx and creating a mask from some tracing paper to repeat the stamping the other two times on Arches 90# hot press watercolor paper.

I used the Quinicridone Coral and the Sepia for most of the painting. The leaves were a mix of 3 colors (yellow and 2 greens). I added a touch of Pearlescent medium in the flower centers.

Trimmed down and adhered to a black cardstock then onto my side folded white card.

Stamped the quote using my Tim's Stampin Platform with Distress Picket Fence and embossed with white embossing powder.

Die cut the "Smiles from white cardstock and adhered to front.

On the inside, stamped the glories again inking the stamp with Distress colors and moved it around with a wet brush.

Stamped the sentiments using the black and clear embossed.
