Kind soul

Hello everyone! I was going to post the card I made for Bill for his birthday last week, but just haven't gotten around to taking a picture, so instead I will share one I did a few weeks back.

A few weeks ago I was playing around with my Magenta Nuance powders.  I have already posted the first card I made, so this is the second one.

I embossed the image - Wplus9 - Kind Soul - onto some Canson 140lb watercolour paper using white ep.  I then sprinkled powders in the colours and areas I wanted them, then spritzed with water.  I used my paintbrush to guide some of the colours, the rest I just tilted my paper for the colours to disburse.

After it was dry, I trimmed down the sides.  I layered it onto a piece of cold miri cardstock, then onto some green polka dot designer paper.

To finish off I added some dark pink silk ribbon as well as some Nuvo crystal drops on the leaves.  I ended up doing a second layer of dots because once the first drops dried they were hard to see.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again real soon.  Enjoy your day!

This just took the top of my head right off, Pauline! The coloring is extraordinary and the polka dot background and hot pink ribbon just finish it off like the gift that it is!! Hugs, Darnell

Wowie! Knocked me right off my chair! Hello, Pauline. We've returned from vacation and I'm catching up, but it's never too late to see such an extraordinarily gorgeous card! You're so good with those powders. I've heard they can be tricky, but your results are spectacular. Beautiful stamp to fill the card front, perfect choice for the paper and ribbon colors. Wow! Love how you added the dots to the leaves. Thank you, thank you for making my day!
