Happy Sunday! Popping in with a card to share. I am playing along with this week's Make It Monday Challenge. I almost did not get a chance to play. Busy school week with exam schedule. My 7th graders have Social Studies State Exam tomorrow. I have to be at work again by 6:30 am. Only 30 minutes earlier, but it really makes a difference. Off to bed after I do this post. Only a few more days and the students will be out for summer vacation. I am out June 16th. I think I will lock myself in my craft room for several days! LOL!
For the gradient watercolor die cut challenge, I started with some Kuretake Watercolors and watercolor paper. I chose greens fro the leaves.
I die cut the Branching Out die. I glued directly to the linen paper. I added the die cut sentiment "Sending" from DFTW PTI kit that I die cut from white card stock three times and true black once.
I layered the black over the white to create a lighter shadow effect. Makes the black pop and look like it is suspended or floating a bit. I added a few shimmery dots using the Kirarina Wink Black Pearl pen.
I chose to use just the "Sending" on the front to comply with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge and finish card on the inside with HUGS!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
By the way, if you are in need of a new paper trimmer, the new Fiskars Deluxe Paper Trimmer with Aluminum Rail is FABULOUS! It cuts card stock like butter! The aluminum rail ensures precise cutting every time.
