Make My Monday Challenge #32...

Hi! The latest Make My Monday challenge is up and the theme is this beautiful photo.

The thing that really caught my eye was the beautiful background. I decided to use one of my favorite techniques - Joseph's Coat. Here is my card.

I started with two pieces of watercolor paper on which I smooshed various inks in yellow, pink, green and orange and let them air dry, On one I randomly stamped the leaf image from the Leafy mini stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger's Clear embossing powder. Then I covered the whole thing with Dark Garnet Artistry ink. I trimmed this piece to size and mounted it on a black card base. 

I used the Text Block Birthday die by Papertrey Ink to cut a piece of dark brown card stock which I mounted on the other piece of watercolor paper. I also covered the whole piece with Versamark ink and Ranger's Holographic embossing powder for some added pop.

Hope you liked my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Please do visit the Make My Monday Challenge blog to link your entries and also some really fabulous inspiration by my talented team mates.
