I was scrolling through my YouTube subscription feed and saw a gorgeous card by Julie Ebersole. I noticed it was foiled on watercolor paper. I didn’t take the time to watch the video, but I became curious to see how well it worked. Then I happened upon the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Love is in the Air and thought it would be a perfect reason to try to remake the card.
I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI with the Winnie and Walter stamp set. I copied it using my laser multi-function printer onto watercolor paper. Then I foiled with with the Minc. It worked, but not quite as pristinely as I’d like. I still think it’s beautiful though. I did the foiling and watercolor, then later watched Julie’s video and added the Stickles. I clearly need to practice application of Stickles (I’ve avoided them like the plague because I never allow them to dry long enough and always end up smudging them. 😦 )
All in all, I really like this card and think I’ll try these techniques again to improve the execution.
