Lighthearted Leaves - 1

This is an interesting card, employing several techniques.

Technique #1:  Take Watercolor Paper and with the Stampin' Spritzer, spritz with a fine mist of water before stamping.

Technique #2:  Using the smallest Acrylic Block (Block A) as a stamp.  Just ink up the block and stamp randomly, while the Watercolor Paper is still wet, which causes the ink to run and bleed and make the geometric squares irregular. Used here is Mint Macaron and Soft Sky.

Allow to dry completely, then stamp with Archival Black Ink an image. In this case, it is the single long stem from Lighthearted Leaves.  

Added here is also a strip of Typeset Designer Paper, which looks like newsprint.

Technique #3:  Add Snail Adhesive or tape runner to the back of one side of the image and randomly (or deliberately) loop the Metallic Gold Thread, so it peeks out from the underside.

Technique #4:  Color the White Perfect Accents any color you wish, by making a mixture of Crystal Effects and the color Ink Refill you wish to color it and using a brush to literally color the White Perfect Accents. Allow to dry thoroughly before adhering to your project.

Any occasion, all occasions, male or female.... just an all-around useful card.

Thanks for looking,
Carole
