My name is Tracy Pounds and I am one of the Sr. Design Team Members for this fabulous blog! Here is the card that I have created. I would like to share with you some simple techniques that I used to create a lovely water color background and a stamped/debossed image using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.
Tracy’s How To:
1. Cut a piece of white cardstock (one with no texture will work best). Take a few watercolor pencils and begin shading different spaces on the cardstock.
4. To create a sparkly effect, I then applied Stickles (Diamond) inside the flowers and very lightly along the stems. Don’t over do…it’s meant to be a subtle sparkle effect. Set aside to dry.
Now you’re ready to add this fabulous piece to your handmade card, embellish further with ribbon, and a stamped sentiment, and you have a one-of-a-kind creation! Please feel free to leave comments or questions and I will be happy to reply!
