Wednesday March 15, 2017
Welcome to mid month reminder over at

Below is the challenge graphic that needs to be added to your blog list where you show what challenges you are entering. Please add it if you are adding a card so you can possibly win the challenge.

As I said on March 1st.. I don't send out Easter cards but I thought it doesn't have to say Easter but a card that could be used for Easter or any other reason.. This awesome cross is if I remember right from Spellbinder.. The die is from Simon Says.. I love the word Believe.. in fact I have a white tattoo on my inside left wrist ...Believe..  I took some watercolor paper and embossed the cross in black embossing powder then took my Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints and three colors and did the background. I let it dry, then I took some water and splattered it on the watercolor piece and blotted it up. Then took Mr. Huey's calico shine and splattered it over the card. I was searching for the right card base color or background card stock color to add the design piece to but was not finding the right piece.. Then thought of my Washi tape - low and behold there was the perfect piece. So I lined both sides of the card with this awesome Washi tape and then used some foam adhesive to raise the cross card piece.  I am loving this card and look.
