Springtime Sparrows

Hello! It's Monika here today, bringing you a Spring card. 
I wanted to make something that looked soft and delicate. I decided to do some water coloring.

SpringtimeSparrowsTatteredMist

I stamped the image (Springtime Sparrows clear stamp set) on watercolor paper with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using White embossing powder. Then I colored the whole image with blue Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist (straight from the bottle with a paint brush). After that, I filled in the images with pink and green ink, and at the end, splattered some more blue ink on.

I kept the embellishing simple. I added some pearls and Baker's Twine.
I die-cut a bloom with the smallest die from Kindness Flowers Die set out of Vellum card stock and stamped the coordinating image on (Kindness clear stamp set) with VersaMark... then I heat embossed it.

The sketch came from The Sweet Stop, SSS198. We are giving away a prize this week, so please stop by and play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by,
Monika
