Today's card, like yesterdays, was a Twinkling H2O experiment on a image that I've had stamped for a while.
The card base is from Recollections. The image is Impression Obsession Cattails, stamped in Stampin' Up Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, clear heat embossed and painted with a variety of Twinkling H2Os. It is layer on Early Espresso and Old Olive. The sentiment is Hero Arts Thank You Messages.
I was going to add some embellishments but after spending some time trying to figure out an appealing placement I decided maybe less was more and to just leave it as it. I think it works. The image really pops and the artistic font of the sentiment is lovely. Again, the painting isn't perfect and I didn't get the shading I would have like but I can certainly live with it. Maybe the sheen of the paints, which don't show up all that well in the photo, are what makes this medium so forgiving.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
