Stinkin' Cute!

Today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I'm also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge. The Monday Challenge is to use a spray mist and a stamp. The Flickr Challenge is to use embossing. I combined both of them by stamping a background stamp in Versamark and then heat embossing it with white embossing powder. I created a wash of color over the embossing by spritzing a spray mist over the top and letting it run down the paper. When it dried, it created a beautiful ombre effect.

I stamped the umbrella from Abby's Spring Showers and the Skunk from Stinkin' Cute and then colored them with copics. I die cut the umbrella, but had to fussy cut the skunk (boo, no matching die!). I stamped the first part of the sentiment directly onto the watercolor paper, but then heat embossed the second part on a piece of black paper to make it pop.

Stamps: Stinkin' Cute, Abby's Spring Showers, Falling Hearts (Simon Says Stamp)
Dies: Abby's Spring Showers, Stitched Rectangles (Simon Says Stamp)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Strathmore Watercolor
