Today I'm thrilled to be Guest Designer over at CASology for this week's challenge!
I was delighted and stunned to win the 'Rough' challenge recently so I'm honoured to have been invited to join the team this week. Here's this week's cue word...
For my card I did some watercolouring with my Zig markers. I was away at the Happy Little Stampers Craft Retreat this weekend so without letting on I stamped and embossed this lovely magnolia (thanks for the loan of the set, Sarah, and for the loan of the embossing powder, Carol!) and then watercoloured it when I was back home yesterday morning!
On some watercolour cardstock I stamped the flower in VersaMark ink and heat embossed in white. This was then masked while I stamped the leaves and the bud, which were also then heat embossed. I then used the wet on wet technique to colour the image, gradually building up the colour from the marker. I also added some blue around the edge and blended this out. The image was then die cut using a double stitched circle die before adhering on 3D foam and stamping the image onto the card base.
