I love the soft, watercolor look on the background! Can you PM and tell me how you did that? I'm really wanting to get the print pattern and this just gives me one more great reason to have it! I must CASE this card! TFS!

Okaayyyyyyyyyy, if ya really want it! I really didn't like this one that much!
1. I took a creamy carmel spot direct to paper( very vanilla) Covered the whole piece.
2. took my print pattern and watercolor crayons and only colored the outside edge of each diamond. I used a bunch of the blues, navy, and boarding for sure, and I think ruby red, and the creamy carmel, and really rust.
3. I spritzed the air, and then brought my stamp into the mist in the air. I may have done this twice. I let the water do the work, most of the diamonds filled in on their own.
Its not at all the look I was trying to get! It was an experiment! Wasn't even gonna post it!
oh and then I mounted it on my least fav Sahara Sand. I figured if I didn't like it, then it deserved to go on Sahara Sand. I'm not a big fan, could ya tell??
so there you have it!

Okay Barb, now this is weird, because I really don't like the print pattern stamp, but I love the way it looks here. First card using this that I can honestly say that. You just have so much talent that is oozzes out your poures and so you have to not like some of your work.!? Like the others said TFS! It is okay if you don't like it.
Wish I were stamping by the Northern Lights!
