I wanted to copy a card that Birgit Edblom made using Serendipity’s Rowboat and Dock for my son’s birthday. He saw the directions I had printed out for that card and thought it was beautiful. I went looking for the stamp which I thought I had, but I had a similar but much smaller image by PSX. Sigh. I have now ordered that Serendipity image from Impression Obsession. Next year . . .
I decided to make this card which is like one made by Stacy Sheldon (JBgreendawn). I’ve always loved the card she made. She watercolored hers with Distress Oxide ink, but I just used Brusho. The Brusho stained the embossing so it didn’t just wipe off the way regular watercolors do. I made a mess, and two images landed in the wastepaper basket. I saved one, and when it dried, I painted with Brusho and water to add more color in some areas.
