Good Tuesday morning! Oh yeah, it’s Tuesday! It’s Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker. Make sure you stop by the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog for all the deets and for a few announcements.

I decided to step out of my comfort zone for my card today. AND let me tell you . . . This was not an easy card for me to make. Actually, it was a challenge. I’ve had some Twinkling H2Os buried in the cabinet for a few years now, and decided to pull them out, dust them off and use them. That was the easy part. Once I got the images colored, the layout was the hardest. I tried to do a simple and elegant card . . . NO WAY! Then I got a brainstorm to emboss a background with a CB embossing folder . . . well, that’s another story for another time! It could be a good story or a bad story . . . I’ll let you know later.
Anyhoo, here’s my card.
I stamped and embossed the main image three times and then painted them with the Twinkling H2Os. I cut out the second and third images, so that I could layer each section over the other. Here’s a close up of the detail.
