Birthday Wishes and Watercolor Resist


I had the Meadow Greens stamps and dies on my worktable, 
finishing my card for tomorrow's Blog Hop,
and before putting them away, did a card for the latest MIM at Papertrey.
Lexi works her wonders showing us how she watercolor resists.
I didn't have any rubber cement, but used masking fluid instead,
following her instructions applying it to watercolor paper.


From the treated paper came a contemporary, all over design.
I cut some Mega Vases dies, and used 3 of them for a birthday card.
To make them stand out from each other, I sponge inked the sides 
of the vases for a little dimension.


Popped up the center vase with foam, added a die cut a branch from Songbirds, a few
rainstones, and done!

  8. I'm at a loss for words on your beautiful card Nancy! Everyone has said the same thoughts I have about your amazing work of art. It look like your coloring of the vases was so intentional and perfect. I love it!! Meadow Greens has been on my wish list forever, and after seeing your card, I really must add it to my cart. There's always so many things at PTI that call my name but your card steals the show!
