Just for Joan

It's a miracle...but I did manage to get one card made with the grands here all weekend! You have no idea what a feat that is with little ones everywhere! LOL!



Today the featured stamper is my dear friend Joan Ervin! Be sure to check out her gallery and her blog at Stamping With A Passion . Joan makes some really AWESOME cards, can color like nobody's business, and is such a sweetheart! Love ya Joan! Congratulations on your special day!!! :-)

Her card that I chose to case is HERE . I used the same general layout and the same stamp, because you know I LOVE those Sarah Kay images.

This one is called Rose's Garden . I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush, then cut and embossed with my oval Nesties.


The designer paper is Sera Sera by K & Company. The cardstock is Pink Prismatics medium and dark.

The strip across the center was made by punching with a Martha Stewart border punch. The self adhesive pearls were colored with Copic R85.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a great Sunday afternoon.
