Make It Monday + Tuesday Trigger + Simon Says

I combined the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #109: Watercolor Stamping Plus Embossing with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Pastel Pretties.


Cath at MFW posted this inspiration photos of Jordan Almonds which completely make me think of Greek weddings and baptisms. I'm sure they are used by other cultures too, but I don't remember seeing them before I married into a Greek Orthodox family.

Betsy Veldman has a great video tutorial for layering embossing on stamped watercolor images that you can check out at Capture the Moment.




Taking the color palette from the Tuesday Trigger image, a number of Distress Inks are used to randomly stamp the second image from The Sweet Life rose cluster around the perimeter of a white panel. The third rose image is then inked with Versamark and that image heat embossed over the watercolor roses.




The leaf images were inked and embossed the same way and a Big Favorites sentiment fills in the center space. 

The butterflies are punched from a water colored panel using the same colors as the roses and scattered across the card front.

Since Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp this week, I am also linking up there.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
