Iron off embossing technique on this card, using a stencil as a background. I love this little stencil that came with a Studio Calico monthly card kit. Initially I masked off the middle portion of the card to be white with just a sentiment showing. Went through the watercolor process using Tim Holtz distress inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick.
Even though I taped my stencil down (it's not a full sized stencil) it tended to slip a bit as I applied the Versamark. The abstract look didn't bother me and I liked the color combination but, it needed something else. Still maintaining the single layer card idea, I decided on an inlayed die look from Lawn Fawn, "Spring Showers."
I liked it! So here's a little Sunshine!
