For my water color cards today, I came across some Brusho backgrounds I made who knows how long ago.  I couldn’t decide if I liked the turquoise/blue bg or the rainbow bg more…so I used both!  On this  turq/blue one, I put the Mill image into my Misti and stamped it 2 or 3 times w/ Versafne (to get good coverage). I added just a few highlights here & there w/ a white gel pen then added the greeting below it. It’s edged w/ a black marker, then attached to a turq layer & a very narrow black layer.  

Here’s the inside. The greeting was shadow stamped w/ the blue ink slightly offset from the black.


On the rainbow version, I went thru the same repetitive stamping as the first one but ended up heat embossing it w/ black powder anyway. This unknown water color paper is soooo textured it made stamping a line image a little more difficult.

I die cut a narrow black square frame for it & stamped the greeting on a leftover piece of the background. A dot border was embossed on the frame between the image & the greeting.

Here’s the inside.

To make my Butterfly Wish card, I stamped the Butterfly Dream image repeatedly across a white panel then heat embossed it w/ white powder. The distress inks were then sponged across mainly the left side & I let them fade to white on the right. Some random water dots were sprinkled on top, then I took a water brush and lifted the color from the little leaves & added just a touch of green. It was die cut first w/ the largest matting basic die then I used one several sizes smaller to cut out the inside & I inserted a white layer between them.

The first part of the greeting was also done using emboss resist & the Wish die cut was double stacked. The Daisy Garden border die was cut out of white then I separated the diamond part from the flowers and attached one under the top layer & the other on top. I found some wide pink tulle polka dot ribbon & fussed w/ it a bit until I arrived at how it looks now. 
Here’s a look at the inside.

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS425) is He is Risen…celebrate the Resurrection or raise something up, like using embossing. I did both on my cards.

For this Easter card, I paired this beautiful new Celebrate Easter greeting w/ the Lily Cross & the Stained Glass Oval. I know the rectangle version would have worked better, but the oval is the one  I have. I kept the colors neutral & the layout clean & simple to let the images shine. First I put the cross into my Misti & stamped it w/ desert sand. After lightly coloring it w/ Copics, I overstamped it w/ metallic gold ink then heat embossed it w/ gold powder. I did the same to the frame, coloring in just a few areas. 

In real life, the gold embossing is really pretty. You can see it a bit in the pic below.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.



My second Easter card was really quick..the triple crosses were stamped on a die cut circle w/ the lilac ink, then the scripture quote was stamped on top w/ the grape ink. It was added to purple die cut & the white bg was embossed w/ a sun ray folder.
