Above the Clouds Watercolored Encouragement Card

   Hello everyone! Your week going good so far? I got to spend Monday with my grandson and daughter-in-law. I can't believe how big he is getting, he is now 4-1/2 months old and weights over 17 lbs!!! And with my back issues that weight takes it toll on me so whenever I hold him I make sure I'm sitting down. I have also been having fun making cupcakes for my family and friends. Yesterday I made some called Pink Lemonade...they are lemon cupcakes with strawberry buttercream. They were delicious! Do you like to bake? Let's get to my card.....

     I have been wanting to try watercoloring with the hot air balloons in this set for awhile so I thought there is no better time then now. When watercoloring make sure you use the Stazon ink pad so the black does not run with the water. I actually labeled both of my black ink pads, Memento - Use with Stampin' Blends, and Stazon - Use with watercoloring.

     For some fun texture, I also used the Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste and cloud mask on the Balmy Blue cardstock to make a sky scene and while the paste was still wet I sprinkled some of the new Ice Stampin' Glitter coming in the Holiday catalog on top to give the clouds some sparkle. I also embossed the background with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder.

     I kept the inside very simple with just some clouds stamped in the corners and a encouraging sentiment. I really loved making this card. If you would like to purchase any of the items I use today to make this card, I have them all listed down below.....just click on any of the pics and you will be taken to my online store.
     Thank you so much for coming to my bog today and I hope I have inspired you to create something special for someone you love. Come back on Friday to see my project for the CASE the Catalog Friday.....hint I will be using the the Royal Peacock stamp set. Have a great day!

Hugs,

Julie
