MIM #196: Colorful Card Corners

Danielle shows us how to use corners for interest in this week's
Make It Monday.
With a subtle dreamy background, and a sentiment, the colorful corner image 
steals the show.

Rather masculine, but think it could be for a graduate or gal friend. 
1st stamped World Map on watercolor paper in kraft, with Spring Moss on land areas.
Then brushed on water in certain areas. Ocean in Aqua Mist and Spring Rain. 
Hands Of Time is my corner accent. It's Canyon Clay (know it looks orange, but I wanted a coppery color, and that's the closest to copper.
'Antiqued' the edges with gold ink for a vintage feel.
Sentiment also from Hands of Time with the flourish from Stamp-A-Faire Renaissance.
Also did an envelope with another image from Renaissance in Canyon Clay (stamped off).
Hard to see, but added Wink of Stella Gold to the hands and 'Time'.

You can play along and watch Dani's creative genius here:

  3. Now you were thinking outside the box! Oh my goodness this is stunning! Love the way the map looks with a bit of water here and there, truly beautiful!

  4. I am so impressed by your map, great water coloring! I love that coppery clock and your coordinating envelope, great details.

  5. So clever using map as background and watercolor it. Clock in cannon clay looks beautiful!
