Version aquarelle... papier 140 lbs pressé à froid... côté le moins texturé
Premièrement j'ai embossé le texte avec de l'encre noire Versafine et poudre transparente puis j'ai étampé les deux plus grands cercles et j'ai ajouté de l'eau pour faire déteindre l'encre.   J'ai aussi ajouté une petite touche de "Shimmer Spritz" cuivre qui est difficile à voir ici mais qui ajoute un léger effet scintillant à la carte.  Une fois le papier sec j'ai ajouté les deux plus petits cercles et les oiseaux...

Watercolor version... 140 lb, cold press, smooth side...
First I embossed the quote with black Versafine and clear embossing powder.  I stamped the two biggest circles and added water to make the ink runs.  I also added a touch of Shimmer Spritz copper, hard to see here but add a nice glittery effect.
I let it dry and then stamped the two other sizes of circles and the birds...
