Hello, handsome!

I had a bit of watercolour cardstock left over from a previous card, where I'd stamped Hero Arts Lattice background and white embossed.  I decided to sweep some Distress inks across it fairly randomly (including the brand new seasonal Distress Ink Peacock Feathers that arrived from Simon Says Stamp just the other day - hooray!) and spritzed with some water and perfect pearls.  I then pulled out my new Hero Arts "Year round sentiments" clear set, and it came together from there.  


This card will be submitted to three challenges - LilyPad Cards Star Challenge, Lawnscaping Embossing challenge and Simon Says Stamp Father's Day/Special Male Challenge :-)

  6. I can always tell your cards in the class gallery, Michelle, there is something so clean and balanced about them. Did you have professional art training, or are you self-taught?
