Put on those stunna' shades-

cause this card is bright!! I made this card about a week and a half ago for my darling nephew who just turned four. He's my crafty companion ;) I used the new Bear Hugs set along with the Make A Wish set and isn't it great how well they coordinate! Which means that it would also work well with the Hunny Bunnies set, oh think of the  possibilities!!!

All of the images were stamped on watercolor paper with versamark and embossed with black embossing powder. I then water colored with a regular old paint brush, SU inks and markers before cutting out and layering the different images. This was the first card that I made using this technique and I have since learned a great tip. After you are done coloring/ cutting your images, go back and use a marker along the edges. It will hide the white cardstock from showing and give the images a cleaner look. You can obviously tell that I didn't do that on this card lol!
I believe that one of you may have asked how many dimensionals I used on the other birthday card... well, here is a good idea ;)
Don't forget to come chat with us tomorrow evening for our Friday Night Chat! There is going to be some fun things going on and you will definitely want to be the first to know :)
