City Crafter the challenge theme is fabrication. Simon Says Stamp and Show says no rules.
My card uses the watercolor whimsy technique from the current Technique Junkies newsletter. The art panel on my card is vellum. I painted the back with denium, spring green, and plum Creative Inspirations Paints. The shimmer of the paints doesn't show through the vellum very much, but the colors are so deep and rich; they worked beautifully for the back. On the front I first used rose quartz, sage, mocha latte, and sky blue with a Crafters Workshop stencil. I then used a Cornish Heritage Farms background stamp stamped in black and highlighted with a white pen. The sentiment is from Artistic Outpost and is framed with a Spellbinders die cut. The flower is made from five layers of fabric diecut using a Tim Holtz die and is painted with rose quartz and spring green CI paint. The shimmer of the paint against the deep background is wonderful.
