Texture and dimension! This card definitely has both, thanks to the beautiful Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Those of you who follow me regularly know I LOVE all things vintage and romantic, and this embossing folder meets both of these criteria.

watercolored romantic cardAt first, I was a little intimidated by this image, but water coloring it was a breeze. I used the no-line method, where I stamped the image in Sahara Sand, and then used an Aqua Painter and various inks to color the leaves and flowers.  (The details can be found in the tutorial, which is available by clicking the tutorial button found later in this post.)
