I pulled out Wplus9 quilt prints and on water colour paper (cause I was originally going to pull out the distress inks) I white heat embossed the pattern diagonally across the card front I had. Once it was all said and done I decided that I was going to spritz it instead of doing the water colouring. Took a while for it to saturate into the paper. Once it was dry I removed the original heat embossing I had done with my iron and a scrap paper! Gave it a clearer outline to where I had actually stamped. The mist didn't really resist as I thought it should!
For putting this first card together I decided that with the gold it needed to be an anniversary type card. Just seems classy to me! So I die cut the word together and then covered it with glossy accents and set it aside to dry. Then I cut a panel of my paper I created and place it on. Originally I only had 1 piece there but it didn't look right, thats when I added the second piece and put the small gap between. I then stamped forever add it to a black card base and once the glossy accents was dry added it to the card front!
For this card I took the leftover piece I had from the first card and die cut together. I just love the inlaid die cut look! Can't go wrong. So after I had die cut out of the water colour paper as well I glued down that piece onto the black card front. Pieced the words all together. Had thought about stamping something different but the forever just looks so right! I then trimmed what was left of the piece I had and add them to the card as well just for some extra detail!!
Hope everyone else enjoyed day one as much as I did!! Looking forward to so much more inspiration!
