Best Wishes

 I had a heap of fun with this card.  I went all out with the watercolouring though.

Let's Squash It - Nature embossing + watercolour
https://letssquashit.blogspot.com/2021/06/challenge-9-nature-and-watercolouring.html

I used an embossing folder and the "smoosh" technique from a tutorial.  I added a leaf embellishment which has been sitting in my stash for quite a long time.  I had two left from the ones that I bought several years ago (hate to think how long ago now).  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  I used water colour paints from the gold set by Gansai Tambi to colour the embossing folder, image and edges of image and sentiment.  I used three colours (Blue Gold, Red Gold and Champagne Gold) on the embossing folder and image and the Red Gold on the edges.

  1. Your card is fabulous Suze, the monochromatic look is awesome. Great choice of colour for the background and image, it works well with the cardstock you chose. The coloured embossing looks fabulous too and adds lots of texture to the background.
    Cheers,
