I have been playing with Brushos water color crystals and embossing to make some fun backgrounds. I love how this one came out:
For my base, I took a mat and sprinkled on three colors of Brushos. I then sprayed them with water and smashed my paper into the crystals. I then let it dry and embossed the Raindrop Background with white embossing powder and Versamark. For the top panel, I used the same color mixture, but I smashed my paper into the mixture several times until it all blended and covered the paper. I embossed the Dancing in the Rain greeting and the Umbrella images on the same panel. Next I fussy cut the umbrella, added Stickles to make it look like it was shimmering in the rain, and then I popped it up on the corner.
A fun card to make!

Since today is Memorial here in the USA, I thought I'd share a patriotic card in honor of our military heroes.
I've seen a lot of shaker cards on line and in card magazines lately so I decided to create one. I haven't made a shaker card in years. I started with a blue card base and added a red panel. Next I stamped the oval stain glass image on white CS with Memento Black ink and colored it with red, blue and light gray Copics. The blue panel was stamped with the splatter background image in VersaMark ink, after die cutting the circle out. The sentiment was stamped in black ink on white CS, then the USA was stamped in red after stamping off once. Sequins were added to the inside for the shaker part and some star buttons in red, white and blue complete the look.
Thanks for stopping by today!
