Birthdays Are Cozy
Here is another card I made this weekend with some of my Ai goodies using the awesome sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch. I decided to experiment with a new technique to join up with the Art Impressions gallery. This time I played around with embossing first, then stamping over top using my Tombow marker ink and then using a water brush to give it a watercolour effect. It was tricky not to have the tree colour bleed into the background colour! I chose to make it into a birthday card to link up with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge as well.
