Easy & Simple Friend Card (Watercolor Background & Heat Embossing)

Do you ever just want to play with paper and paints and create something super simple and easy? That’s where today’s card started. I was filing through my stash of stamp set that I’ve been meaning to use when I came upon the Hello Friend Wishes stamp set from Mama Elephant. The large, script greeting was begging to be embossed on top of a watercolor background, don’t you think? :)

I watercolored the background with Mijello Mission Gold watercolor paints onto cold press Strathmore watercolor paper, and then splattered some gold ink from the FineTec Gold palette.

The greeting was stamped in VersaMark ink and embossed using Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder from Wow. I also stamped a sentiment from the same Hello Friend Wishes stamp set on the inside of the card using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink.
