Beauty Is Card

Hi Friends:  Time for another card!  Today's card is a summery, garden watercolor using Art Impressions stamps.  I stamped the images using the AI stamps and the markers listed below onto watercolor paper.  Once the focal image was done, I edged the paper with Forest Moss Distress Ink, then added some yarn fibers, hemp, and baker's twine.  I glued the image to 2 panels from a MME paper pad, then distressed the panels and edged with brown chalk ink.  The sentiment was stamped on Handsome Hunter Stampin' Up paper using Versamark ink, then heat embossed with white embossing powder and attached with pop-dots.  I added some clear Wink of Stella glitter to the flowers for a little extra punch.  Thanks for taking a look!  Have a great week,
