IO Challenge- Summer


Summer is upon us with the blue skies, warm sun, and lots of greenery and blooms.  For my card today, I wanted to highlight the colors that remind me of the season.

I started the card by embossing the Rose Leaf Branch onto watercolor paper with white embossing powder.  I then wet the paper with water and added some Colorburst powders to color around the leaves.  I moved the paint around with a brush and then splattered extra paint onto the card to give it a speckled look.  Here is a close up of the resist:


To finish the card, I added the Hello Summer sentiment.
