I Would Travel the World With You



I'm up over on the Neat & Tangled blog today sharing this card.

I was in the mood to watercolor a bit, so I pulled out Origami Map.

The map image was clear embossed and then I colored it in with Distress Markers.  I used two shades of green for the land masses:  Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss, blending them with a water brush.

I also used a very light application of Stormy Sky for the water.



Once the watercoloring was complete, I removed the embossing with some printer paper and an iron, and then stamped the sentiment in Versafine.

Quick post today, there's lots going on as I'm getting ready for Neat & Tangled July Release Week next week.  I've got a couple new things in this release that I'm really excited about!
