Project 325: Painted congrats card


My cousin just got her MBA and I wanted to make her something special to celebrate. I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and thought I'd try a new painted idea I had been wanting to try:


I used an aquabrush with Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserve and Victorian Velevet Distress Inks to get the watercolor effect. I varied the height to match the sketch. I heat embossed the greeting in black to make it stand out against the pale colors. The sequins add a touch of glam and I think it's a great finished project. Will have to try the technique again!
