Remarkable You

Welcome back and Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!  I've created a card for the current challenges at CAS(E) this Sketch and Just Add Ink (Inspiration).  I've used a stamp set from Stampin' Up that I haven't used in a while and thought the flower image would work perfectly for the vertical rectangle in the sketch.

I started by cutting a panel from Bristol card stock, and then heat embossing the image with white embossing powder.  I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the image, spreading the ink around the image with a water brush.  I dried it with my heat tool then flicked gold watercolor paint on it as well as the card base.  Once that dried, the vellum strip with the heat embossed sentiment was wrapped around the panel.

The card base was also cut from Bristol in order to have the same color white as the water colored panel.  I pulled out a piece of Textured Pacific Point card stock (long retired) and cut it to fit horizontally across the base.  Once the main image was mounted with foam tape, some sequins were added for a little more sparkle.

Thank for visiting!  I've added links to both challenges above, so be sure to head over there and enjoy all the amazing inspiration.
