Happy Monday fellow crafters! I hope you all had a fabulous start to your week! I am about to head off to bed but I wanted to show you the card that I made for this weeks' Make it Monday Challenge.
Dawn McVey has challenged us to create a project using heat embossed sentiments with a watercolor background. I will be honest, this was actually my 4th attempt at a card tonight. I wouldn't say my first 3 attempts were terrible, but I just wasn't getting the "watercolor" look that I was going for. I finally figured out that the paintbrush I was using was just too fat, so I switched it out for a thinner one and this is my finished card:
I used PTI Pretty Peonies stamp set along with TPC Studios Card Crafting Hello stamp set, stamped in black pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I didn't want my water-coloring effect to come out too strong, so I am happy with the way my 4th attempt came out. Glad I didn't give up!
Anybody else having trouble receiving their PTI orders this month? I was really hoping to have my PTI order in by now, but unfortunately it still has not arrived. I don't think I've ever had to wait more than a week for an order to come in, and the UPS tracking number still only says that a shipping label was created, not that a package has been received for mailing out yet. I'm getting worried that something went wrong with my order :( I was looking forward to participating in the Blog Hop tomorrow with the new Bunny Bag die, and now I don't think I will be able to...
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week, until next time, thanks for stopping by!
