Persian Motifs

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a card that I made recently. I recently got a few stamp sets from Altenew!! I've been waiting to play with them for a while and finally got a chance to ink them up. Here's what I made:


I used the Persian Motifs stamp set and gold embossed it on watercolor paper. Most of the time, mainly due to my laziness, I try to color with my markers. I wanted to try watercolors with this image, right from the time I saw this card by Jennifer McGuire :) I used distress inks Broken china and bundled sage for watercoloring. I really enjoyed watercoloring this piece.


I gold embossed the sentiment 'thanks' from Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and You. I did not have any card base that matched this blue. So I inked a white card base with broken china and adhered the water colored panel in an angle.

This is one of the pieces I colored for Kathy's 30 day coloring challenge. You can see what I color everyday on my Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
