Dustin Pike is doing another card drive, this time for a young girl named Emily. You can read his post here.  If you would like to participate in it, there is still time to make Emily a card.

For the base of this card, I used a pre-embossed white card.  On that, I used colored cardstock from Archivers for the scalloped frame; the image and the frame were cut using Spellbinders dies.  The pony is, of course, one of Dustin’s images that he so graciously provided for Emily’s cards.  To color the card, I used a “watercolor” technique from Tim Holtz’s online class, Creative Chemistry 101.   In class, Tim used Distress Ink re-inkers for this process.  Since I have a limited number of re-inkers, I also combined them with Distress Ink pads.  I used the following re-inkers:  Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Milled Lavender.  I also used the following Distress Inks:  Black Soot, Mustard Seed, Gathered Twigs, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves.  Then, I spritzed the colored image with water mixed with Perfect Gold Perfect pearls.
