Isn't this a wonderful quote? Soooo true too! **It's from PMS (Paper Makeup Stamps - she has a sale on 2 sets that ends today! I picked up the Star Struck one and can't wait for it to arrive!)
I started off giving my watercolor paper a light wash in blue. It was very subtle. Then I ran it through the script embossing folder. Oh.My.Wow. (that's my new saying - hi Jacquie)
Watercolor paper embosses like a D.R.E.A.M. Then I highlighted the embossing by running my ink pad over it lightly. I uses a the same shade of ink to stamp my quote onto my patterned paper. It's Anna Griffin from my stash - I don't think it's possible to have enough of it - and tore the top edge. I also cut some flowers and leaves from the paper to use as an accent. The base was stamped in the same blue as well with a rose stamp. My butterfly was die cut and then embossed with the Textile embossing folder. I added stickles to the design and some in the flowers I cut out as well.
I got totally impatient waiting for them to dry so pulled out my heat gun to speed up the process. And in so doing, aged the edges of my paper. LOVE THAT!! Totally unexpected and I LOVE how it turned out!
