a card!! finally a card!!

Hi friends!!


I made two cards tonight, one of them I'll be showing you on Tuesday for the new Shopping Our Stash challenge, but the second, I'm showing you tonight :)

A big, huge, super smoochy smooch to the latest Clean and Simple 2 class that's on over at online Card Classes right now, for helping me FINALLY find my missing mojo :)


I stamped and heat embossed the gorgeous hexagons background stamp onto white watercolour paper. Then I used my watercolour paints to create an ombre effect. Its messy looking, but I like that. It looks handmade (and isn't that the point?)

This was inspired by a technique Jennifer did on day 2, but it's not quite a one-layer  card, but close. I just love the colours. (It's about 8 colours, all blended together with my water brush).

Hope you like!

I'll be back soon :)
