Hey everyone!  I am getting ready to head to a crafty retreat this week and I am getting so excited! My problem?  Trying to figure out what to bring and what to leave behind!  It's been a while since I've gone away to stamp with friends and this time I'll be meeting some "old" friends and some crafty friends that I know online, but have never met in person!  How fun!  I can't wait!

Today I am sharing a card for the Pink Elephant Technique Challenge which is to emboss somewhere on your card.

Watercolor congrats

I was in a watercolor mood so I pulled out my Clearly Whimsy Distressed Backgrounds stamp set and went to work.  I used only one of the stamps from that set and stamped it repeatedly in different colors of pastel ink.  I then flipped the stamp the other direction and stamped a very light gray (Amuse Pebble) to create an almost watermark feel.

One of the brushstrokes I embossed in gold.  I really like how this turned out!  The Congrats was stamped with black ink and is also from a Whimsy set called School Spirit.

You can play along with the Pink Elephant Challenge until Sunday!  Thanks for visiting!
