Special Delivery

Friday, August 10, 2018
Hi friends! I'm back with another card inspired by one of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over on Splitcoaststampers.

I started with Canson watercolor paper and decided to do a watercolor background with some Shimmerz sprays in palm reader, bamboo leaf, and a bit of green acres creameez. I did several layers until I was happy with the results, then set it aside to do my stamping.

I selected this fabulous typewrite image from the Tim Holtz Vintage Things Mini Blueprint Strip stamp set and stamped with Nocturne VersaClair ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then watercolored with the same inks I had used for my background.  This panel is matted on black and popped up with foam tape.

The sentiment is from the Special Delivery Remnant Rubs, I love how crisp these rub ons transfer.  I wanted a little something behind the stamped image, so rummaged through my metal drawer and found this shiny silver filigree photo corner. I wanted it to be a bit darker, so dry brushed it with black Heavy Gesso and then accented with some brushed iron wax paste. It transformed it into just the right color.

I finished off with a sweet little die cut bow. I jsut adore this little bow die from Pink & Main. The perfect size for cardmaking and oh, so sweet.  I finished it off with a little enamel dot center and a strip of coordinating glitzy black paper for a ribbon like effect.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic start to your weekend. Our temp is slated to be 109 degrees today and I think I've officially had enough of summer! Bring on fall and pretty leaves and sweatshirts and salted caramel lattes, please! {grin} I think I might just have to have a water balloon fight with the boys to cool off!

  1. Wow Julee this is stunning - love the green behind the image, and that wee filigree piece is an unique accent, as is the bow tie.
