CQC141/HSSTC122 - Thanks for All You Do

Happy Saturday to you!!!  It's going to be a busy morning for me! Off to CT Humane to walk some dogs and then to a Bow Wow Zumbathon fundraiser for CT Humane.  I made 45 cards dog-themed cards to put in the gift bags! And can you believe - I didn't take pictures of them!?  They were all one-layered, no coloring quickies, but they had to be with my time constraints!

Today's card is for two challenges:  ColourQ#141 and Hand Stamped Sentiments Theme Challenge#122. These two challenges fit together perfect!!!!  Blues/Greens and Peacocks!!

I've had this Cuttlebug peacock folder for a while now and don't think I ever used it, so I was so excited to see the challenge!!!

I cut a piece of watercolor paper and ran embossed it.  Then I used my daubers and colored with my Distress Inks.  Then I misted it with water so the colors blended.  I went back and added a bit more color to make it more vibrant after heat drying.  Then I used PTI's Mat Stack die and stamp and embossed in white.   A pretty fast and simple card, but I LOVE the colors!!!

Here are the two challenges:



Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks for your visit!
