WOYWW 306 & Watercoloring Embossing

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.

What is on your Workdesk this Wednesday?  I will come around and see.  Here is what is on mine.  I haven't cleaned it since I did my last card. Check out Julia's Stamping Ground and you can see a lot of desks!

I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Versa Mark White and embossed with Winter white Embossing Powder. I watercolored with the Old Olive and Melon Mabo  inks in the lids of the pads, and wet my brush with water.  I used an old retired SU! stamp:  Romanitc Rose.  The sentiment is Stampendous.  The cardstock is Melon Mambo & Pixie Pink.  My problem was that I couldn't see where to paint. LOL

I stamped  the Dictionary Background Stamp  onto Irresistibly Yours Specialty DP from SU! with Soft Suede; then rubbed it real hard with a tissue, and the embossed flowers appeared! :) After I stamped the flowers in Black Momento and colored with Calypso Coral and Old Olive,  I fusszy cut the image and mounted it  on some more of the special DP on which I had stamped leaves from Secret Garden in Old Olive.  (and rubbed)  I mounted on Spellbinders Label 10 die cut. I used Calypso Coral for the panel under the DP, and then mounted on a Soft Suede base.  The butterfly was punched with Martha Stewart punch, ant put on the card with pearls.  I also tied the paper around the flowers with bakers twine.

Thank you for stopping by!  I appreciate any comments.  I am on my way to visit you!
Happy What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday!

  5. Wow! That rose card is a work of art! Gorgeous!
    Have a great week,

  6. Beautiful cards - I just LOVE the rose card.

  7. Hi Sharon. In answer to your question as to whether or not my title picture is my current craft room, the answer is no. I gave up my big craft room in the basement to my daughter. She has since moved out unofficially. LOL I'm considering taking it back. ;-)

  8. The Stippled Rose is one of the first SU stamps I every purchased and it is still my favorite. I love the softness you created by stamping on the Watercolor paper. Lovely.

  9. Hopping by to say hello. Beautiful cards!!

  10. Both so very lovely. I think you did a fabulous job with the watercoloring. Love that card. It's so soft and pretty. Happy Mother's Day! Hugs, Maggie
