I Brake for Big Eyed Beauties !!

Hello IBFS fans !!

It's Crystal here and today's card is using a cute Big Eyed Beauty from Randi Dandi series #2 sheet  , I tried a fun technique for today's card, I am stepping outside my comfort zone here ... I heat embossed my image and the watercolored it , my first attempt  , watercolor is not supposed to be perfect ,it's suppose to look organic with puddles of color , well that's my take on it , I can see I will be doing more practice  , I hope this has inspired you to step outside your comfort zone and try a new technique  , well new to you anyway ...


I used watercolor paper and Tim Holtz ink pads and a paint brush and water to get this look , my flower is handmade from crepe paper and I inked the edges and added fruit punch stickles   ,  the leaf is a MFT-399 layered leafs die, my Happy Birthday  is an Impression Obsession die DIE234-M
Thanks for stopping in ,I hope this card has inspired you to get inky with some rubber stamps today ,
for this image and so many more visit the IBFS store  .

  2. Crystal, this is so pretty! I love that you embossed the image first. I can't believe this is your first time water coloring! The happy birthday across the top is really cute too. Love this one.
