Sweet Dixie .. Lilly Make a Wish

This Friday I am featuring a card created using stamps designed by 
Kath Halstead Sweet Dixie Lilly make a wish from Personal Impressions.

I love this Water Lily border it reminds me of those wondrous paintings by Monet.

Here's my quick and easy not so Monet creation.

A background was created by blending Tim Holtz Faded Jeans 
Distress Oxide ink onto watercolour card. Water has been splashed onto the 
background and blotted to help lift some of the colour off. 

The Water Lily border has been stamped and embossed across it.

A watered down wash of white Gesso is applied to make the background more
 subtle and enables the colour lifting off to pool around the embossed areas..

 When dry the Water Lilies have been coloured using a White Posca 
Marker and Kuretake wink of stella brushes.

The Dream sentiment along with the flourish swirl has been stamped, 
embossed and the card edged with Faux stitching before mat and layering.

Thank you for sharing your time 
and what ever you are up to this weekend have a wonderful one.

Hugs from Tracey xx
