Watercolor and embossing folders...

...may not be a new technique to you but it was to me!

Below is the link to the wonderful Jennifer McGuire video...



For my card I started with water color paper and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations "Retro Cirque".
Next I added Distress inks twisted citron, wilted violet and squeezed lemon as per the video.
Once the water color piece was dry I added it to a white linen card stock base card.
The verse from Hampton Art Stamps by Janet Dunn was stamped onto white linen card stock and then I cut it out before applying it to the card front.
