...here's my kard! I used two colors of distress ink to ink up my ef, then spritzed with water, inserted my watercolor paper and pressed with my hands. After 30 seconds or so, this is what I opened up. I then trimmed it down a bit and mounted it offset, cut a diagonal strip, ink blended and added my sentiment, then mounted that. I also inked another sentiment to go inside, because this will be my Mother's Day kard! My mom doesn't have internet, so she doesn't see anything that I make until she gets it so I'm safe. :oP
Edited to add: I did run my original argyle folder through the die machine, but while playing, ingenius Michele came up with that idea and loved it (give her the credit for this one)! So on second watercolor paper, I did just that using the mostly debossed side of the card. However, not as pretty IMHO. I think the original, mostly embossed side on this folder would work much better. Just have fun it it!!!
