Stretch Your Stamps Day 1

This class is gong to rock!!!!  Today's card was created using a MFT patterned triangle stamp using Versamark ink.  I used clear embossing powder on watercolor paper.  I used Stampin Up ink refills for color, placing a few dots on my Ranger craft sheet.  Using a watercolor pen, I mixed a bit of water and ink and began applying the ink to the un-embossed triangles.  After the area was colored, I applied a water wash to cover the embossed/patterned areas.  When that step was completed, I switched colors and moved on down to the next area.  I wish you could see the shiny areas!  I die cut the words our of the watercolor paper, and out of black paper, so they would be inlaid.  I added two striped of washed color as an accent on the bottom, a few embellishments, and 3 stars on the inside.  The inside of the envelope matches just enough to add interest.  I adore the way it turned out!  It took me hours, and I think it shows!
