It's Your Birthday for AYSI...
Retro Rubber Challenge #39...

It's Graduation Day...

Happy Monday! It’s graduation time and that means I needed to whip up a few cards in short order! I am using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to help me out with this little project!

I started by heat embossing the image in white. Then using my zig clean color markers, I watercolored the bottom of the gowns, legs and shoes. On my first attempt I used clear embossing but you couldn’t tell what I was making! fms 1 (640x522)

I added the sentiment and then layered on the night of navy cardstock. The sparkle is a piece of glitter tape. That stuff is awesome! fms 2 (640x296)

I made two cards in the blue, white, silver combo and another in gold, brown, and yellow for another young grad. fms 3 (640x533)

I was pretty happy with these but mostly how easy the zig markers were to use. In fact, you will see several watercolored cards from me this week because of that! fms 4 (640x368)

A huge thank you to Jen T. at Freshly Made Sketches for picking THIS card as a Perfect Princess! I was more than surprised and thrilled!

Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to stop in tomorrow – it’s time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge!

Supplies: CS: Watercolor paper. SU! night of navy. PTI kraft. Stamps: SU! go graduate. PTI for the graduate. Other: SU! glitter tape. Zig clean color markers.

These are so cute showing just the feet! Great watercoloring! I have zigs but haven't mastered it yet! Glad you joined us at FMS!
