CAS Watercolor Card Challenge - Emboss Resist

This is a reminder that there is still lots of time to submit a card to the CAS Watercolour Card Challenge: Resist.  Here is another card I created to inspire you:

First off I want to thank Loll for creating my awesome watermark! Isn't it cute? I just love that kitty!

I started out by masking off a rectangle on some watercolor cardstock and then stamped the Winnie & Walter Background stamp inside the rectangle with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then used my Gambai Tambi water colors using the wet on wet method, one color at a time, drying it with a heat gun, then adding the next color and so on.

The "happy 2nd" part of the sentiment was created with dies from Winnie & Walter (happy) and PaperTrey (2nd). I stamped the rest of the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink after removing the masking tape.

I hope you will find some time in this busy season to play with us. Happy holidays to everyone!

Thanks for coming by!
