I've been working on creating cards with the watercolor backgrounds that I created earlier. This background was a little dark and busy and many designs didn't work well with it. I thought that gold embossing would show up, but didn't. I filled in the heart, flowers and leaves with pearlescent watercolors. It took several layers to make them show. I even added some clear Wink of Stella pen to the heart for some sparkle. The sentiment was completely lost in the background, so I stamped it on white cardstock and added a red frame to cover the stamped sentiment. I also added a gold ribbon to anchor the sentiment.
I used Sizzix rectangle dies to cut out the layers. I didn't notice until card was assembled that the pierced holes didn't punch all the way through. I'll have to pay more attention the next time I use these dies.
