CAS Watercolour June Challenge - happy birthday

I've been wanting to try the Embedded Brushos Technique since I saw this beautiful card in Loll's blog last month, so I tried it for the CAS Watercolour June Challenge
Bonnie is hosting the challenge this month and the theme is Ocean. It's getting pretty hot where I live, so this theme is perfect for the season!




Here's my card:



I followed the Loll's detail instruction exactly. The first pull was a bit too bright, so I went on to the second pull. I inserted a second piece of watercolor paper, spritzed the inside top of the embossing folder, closed the lid, and ran it through the Big Shot. I liked the second pull better for this card. 
I trimmed the watercolor paper and pasted it on the black card base. The sentiment was gold heat-embossed.


I like that the card has a black kimono feel to it. I wish I had this gorgeous kimono! 😉



Thanks for checking in!

  4. Very pretty, and I totally see the reference to Kimono style, Hideko! Oh dear, still no Brushos in my craft room... next time I go to Bobby's house I'm sure she will share!
