WWC22: Watercoloring plus Silhouette

Pretty exciting on the heels of our recent blog hop.

Our challenge this week is Heidi's "Combination Challenge";
combining watercoloring with silhouette.  It's really a cool
combination that allows for lots of different interpretations.

For my card, I smooshed some ink pads on a piece of
Watercolor paper.  I spritzed it with water and then
ran it through the big shot in the Beautifully Baroque
embossing folder.  The colors were a tad too pale,
so I strengthened them by adding more color with an aqua painter.
I let that layer dry and then gold embossed the edges.

The sentiment from From My Heart (p 106) was embossed
on a Window Sheet with Gold Embossing Powder. 
The Window Sheet was attached with glue dots,
which really don't show at all.   Add some
Gold Ribbon (#134547 on p 206) and Gold Sequin
Trim (#132983 on p 206) and you're in business.
I think I was feeling like gold the day I made this!
Please check in to see what the other Watercooler
Artists have done with this challenge!

Set:  From My Heart, page 106, Clear: 126557  Wood: 132007
