Beautiful Lady....Take 2

 Yesterday I shared a card created with Altenew's Beautiful Lady stamp set....
and I mentioned that I had a second Beautiful Lady image water colored...and drying...
waiting to become card!
the image dried..
and a card was created!
I used a print ...again!!
Using a print again?
That's one for the card making history books!

I enjoyed water coloring this beautiful floral image...
it's got lots of nice details...
and seems perfect for gold heat embossing...
and water coloring.
Yesterday's card had a sentiment banner on the front of the card...
This time...
I opted for some fine gold thread
because the background print has lines of gold in the print pattern.

The sun was streaming through the studio windows...and almost illuminated this card as I was taking photos...
You can see the details really well in in the pic below
(embossing...thread...flower details etc)
*Note: Altenew Crisp Ink Pads were used for all of the water coloring.

Altenew's Beautiful Lady stamp set is definitely one that I will use over and over again.
I hope that the cards I've shared these last 2 days have inspired my card making fiefdoms to get out some water coloring supplies...a heat gun... and embossing powder...
to create a water colored card of your own!

Thanks for visiting...
and have a wonderful day!
