It's time for the monthly Papertrey Ink blog hop! It's been awhile since I've participated. I got a little artsy on my card, mimicking the inspiration photo for the most part.
I added swaths of color to watercolor paper using my Papertrey ink pads and a waterbrush. Very simple and organic. I used Melon Berry, Canyon Clay, Americana, and Vintage Cream inks. After it was dry, I embossed a sentiment from Graceful Greetings with black powder. I deliberately left specks of powder on the paper to get the spattered effect. I also smudged my VersaMark ink pad in two places and embossed in black. It almost looks brushed on. Then I did the same thing along the edges of the watercolor paper with vanilla embossing powder. It gives the card even more of a cool, artsy look! Click on the photo to see it better. I adhered the piece to a Melon Berry card base that I cut with the Noted: Scalloped Square die by Papertrey Ink.
