Vermillion Thoughts

I designed this card for a recent InkUp stamp camp. My requirements were Young Vermillion and watercoloring. I tried to keep the card simple because of the watercoloring and frame cut-out.

To do the frame, I first embossed the frame on Baja card stock. Then I trimmed around it. Finally I snipped a small slit into the center and used it to cut out the inside. I did this, instead of just layering the cream onto the frame, because I wanted the dimension and true fame-like feel. The Baja frame is popped-up over the cream pennant.

The card base is stamped with the Woodgrain background and lightly spritzed with Smooch.

The bird is watercolored (just a brush, a little water, and reinkers) using Red Riding Hood and Espresso.

Thanks for taking a peek!
