I have a card to share today!  I am playing along with PTI Make It Monday  watercolor Stencil challenge.

Since I did not have repositional paper available, I die cut the larger fern leaf from PTI Meadow Greens using one of the PTI coasters for a thicker stencil.  I thought this would soak up some excess water.  I used watercolor paper and watercolored the leaf using the die cut stencil portion.  I do not think it is crisp by any means, but I love the free flowing look to the edges so I decided to work with it.

I gold embossed the smaller fern leaf in the set using versamark.  I love how it looks layered on the watercolor paper and image.  Next,  I die cut  a rectangle from Fabulous Frames dies and white embossed the sentiment from Scripted stamp set.  I finished my card with some loose threading and gold sequins.  I like how it turned out.  It has a bit of a masculine vibe to me.  What do you think?

I am also playing along with a few other blog challenges. 
CASE this Sketch,  CAS-ual Fridays,(embossing) Inkspirational (kraft), and Sweet Stampin'  (no designer papers)challenges.
