Neat & Tangled Release - So Very Blessed



I'm such a fan of Danielle's hand lettered sentiment minis, and this new one might be my favorite yet.



I embossed the sentiment in white, and then I added color using distress inks and a waterbrush.  I first colored in the obvious elements  - the little laurels surrounding the phrase, but then I decided I wanted them to pop a bit more, so using the waterbrush, I very carefully added an outline to each of the elements.



The white mat was adhered directly to the card base and I popped out the stamped panel.

  11. I love love the outlined watercolor look you created Miriam!!! I will have to give this a try....it looks fantastic with the white embossing! **I tried this layering of panels with my feather GI card and I love this look and I found it easier to get "straight" on my card base this way!
