Your Time to Soar!

This past weekend was our high school's graduation and I made several different varieties of graduation cards.  Below are two of them, almost the same, just slightly different.  

Jen Carter Soar Graduation Card Frantic Stamper 1

I like lots of color so for this card I started by scribbling my watercolor crayons directly on to my watercolor paper and then using an aqua pen to spread the color around.  I love how vivid it is.  I then stamped my sentiment with black VersaFine ink and heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder.

The graduation hat is a die from Frantic Stamper called Graduation Ensemble.  It was the perfect accent for the occasion and the sentiment!  I also added the Congrats die, also from Frantic Stamper to finish off the sentiment.

On this second card, the only thing I did differently was that I didn't watercolor quite as much as I did in the first card.  I think I like the first one, with more color, the best.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
