Hello Blogging Buddies,

Today is the start of a new challenge on the DL.ART Challenge Blog


Here is my card for this challenge:


Quickutz Watering Can die
Watercolor pencils
Bee charm
Kraft cardstock
Watercolor paper
Coredinations Brown paper
Various paper from my stash

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock.  I took some Coredinations Brown paper and ran it through my Vagabond with the Die-Versions Whispers Fence Background die, I distressed it with my sanding block and then added it to the card. Next I took some watercolor paper and stamped the Sparkle N Sprinkls Garden Silhouette stamps with Versamark and then heat embossed it with Sparkle N Sprinkle Black Detail embossing powder.  Then I colored the back ground with watercolor pencils.  Next I cut out the Quicktuz Watering Can die and added that to the card, then I trinmed it down and added it to the card on an angle.  Then I made a bow with the DL.ART Mermaids Tale Third Edition Green Hue Crinkle Ribbon and attaching the bee charm to the bow.
