For this card, I tried some new things. The ribbon is our vanilla and gold ribbon colored with an ink pad and then colored again with a clear aquapainter to remove the excess ink. The card is embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and then sponged slightly with Dapper Denim ink.
The pens are stamped with Archival Black ink on watercolor paper and then colored using Dapper Denim and So Saffron ink and an aquapainter. I also accented with a Gold Wink of Stella pen (retired) though our Clear Wink of Stella would work too. They are cut out and matted on a watercolor washed piece of watercolor paper using our new mini dimensionals. Man, I love these things.
Finally, I stamped Enjoy Today from Eastern Beauty on watercolor paper and cut out using the smallest Stitched Shape square.

This card didn't end where it was beginning but it was fun and exciting, like finding a new author you enjoy or a really good book. Check out Andrea's blog, Great Thoughts, or her book salon on Facebook - Great Thoughts' Great Readers. Also, come back to my blog on Mondays and read my Two Types of Ink feature which highlights a new or upcoming book and a project inspired by the novel!
