PTI Make it Monday #111

* giveaway alert - click HERE*


This is the first card I make after my long break, I gotta say, I am not totally happy with it, you think I got "rusty" after not crafting for a while?

....................

It is a new technique I try after watching this video tutorial 

Watercoloring Embossed Images

I used the heart image from PTI with all my heart stamp set, inked and embossed before I try on my watercoloring technique



and then I tried to use the same technique on the little flowers from the same stamp set, but didn't like the result so I stamp it and then add water with the brush to give the watercolor effect



urgh..... maybe I just need more practice




Other supplies used on this card are:

Patterned paper - PTI Text Style green boutique
Die (heart) - PTI limitless layers, heart die
Sentiment - PTI big birthday wishes stamp set
and PTI Giga guide lines stamp set
Buttons - PTI vintage buttons
