Lucky to Know You

Friday, March 9, 2018
Hi friends! I'm back with a fun little friendship card to share with you today.

I had a little time to play in the studio, but back pain had me not wanting to get out of my chair to grab some watercolor paper. So I coated a piece of thin white cardstock with some watercolor ground and pulled out some prima sprays that were next to my desk that made me think of the challenge at The Card Concept this week. The watercolor ground really seems to retain your brushstrokes when you apply it, so it was fun to see how the sprays highlighted those strokes as I applied them.  The effect made me think of a rainy spring day, so I went with an Irish spring layered kind of card.

The sentiment and four leaf clover image are from the new Irish Coffee digi, printed on a laser printer and colored with Copics.  I added a little texture to the watercolor background by embossing with a stars & swirls embossing folder, then added some black and gold accents, plus a button and twine to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day.
