We used the new in-colors and each stamp from Work of Art was assigned a color, so I couldn't change it up too much. Normally, I would not put all these colors together! I struggled a bit to make something I liked. lol
I ended up spritzing my first layer of colors with water. I had previously stamped off before adding each color to the card, and then double-stamped in a few places. After letting the water dry a bit, I added a few more images in full color strength. Once I was fairly happy with how it looked, I embossed the heart and "you" in gold. I smooshed the VersaMark pad on two corners and embossed those as well for more of the artsy touch.
Voila! It turned out pretty well and I was able to add my own personal touch. My finished card looked quite different from the sample by the time I was done. :)
I'll post the other three cards over the next few days. Stay tuned!
