One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

PTI Anniversary Watercolor Challenge Card 2

Using the same Wildflower Garden set, I tried to do what Betsy did with her card.  I white embossed the flowers first, then using the ink and water I applied the ink to the stamp and stamped it just off set from the embossed image.  To make the embossed image pop a little more, I used a dauber and added some lemon tart to the bottom of the card, spring moss to the middle and spring rain only to the portion where the flowers bloom.  My sentiment from iconic Images is stamped on vellum, I added two pearls on each side that I colored with a copics, Mauve Shadaow.
