Just a Note
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. Weather has started to change a bit and some days we have some sunlight and some days are cool. Now I am longing for spring, which means FLOWERS :) The new dies have so many various florals in it and they are awesome. 

Today, I decided to use my dies as guide for this watercolor card.

I started by simply embossing the watercolor paper using the die, instead of cutting it. This gave a perfect impression and allowed me to watercolor using the Zig clean color real brush markers.  The embossed effect gives beautiful texture after we add watercolor to it. It's really cool in real life.

Once the panel was dry, I adhered it to the colored cardbase. I then stamped and embossed the sentiment onto a black scrap. I then, attached the sentiment to the card using 3D foam squares.

Here is a look at the embossed effect in close-up
