Today’s card is one I created for this month’s Leader’s Project Group. I decided to use the Very Vintage Host set (because I love it) and watercolour paper (something I don’t use often enough). I added a wash of colour using my aqua painters and ink pads – so quick and easy, especially when you aren’t worried about staying within the lines! I really like the colour combination I chose too: Coastal Cabana, Merry Merlot & Gorgeous Grape. A bit of heat embossing, some Clear Wink of Stella for glimmer, a popped-up bee and torn edges – lots going on with this card, yet it went together quite quickly. I can’t remember the last time I tore the edges of my cardstock – that was all the rage when I first became a demonstrator YEARS ago! It’s fun to do and adds a nice ragged edge. I hope you enjoy today’s project!
