Today's card is the result of
"When Good Stamping Goes Bad!".
I set out to CASE an easel card...
and practice my watercoloring.
I'm actually impressed with how my watercoloring came out.
I stamped my flower from the Best Thoughts Hostess set* on Shimmery White card stock with Archival Black Ink. I also went out of my comfort zone and watercolored with my neglected Tangelo Twist and my Aqua Painter! The 2014-2016 in-colors have been some of my most favorite colors - Has it really been 2 years already?! - except for poor Tangelo Twist. I think it really shines on this card though. I may just have to use it more... before it retires in May. My leaves were colored with Mossy Meadow - another retiring in-color.
So, if the coloring went so well, where does the "good stamping gone bad" come in?
Well, it's what happened when I glued my beautiful flower panel onto the front of my easel card - which was already assembled ( note to self, don't pre-assemble! ) only to discover that I put it on sideways :( Now I had a Z-Fold card... which is fine, just not what I intended.
I pushed it off the corner of my work table and went to work on another project.
One of those, "I'll deal with you later" things.
I slept on it and, woke up with a solution.
I'd turn it into a gift card holder!
And there you have it!
A card I just may make again - this time on purpose ;)
