My entry for this month's challenge was this colorful artsy Pocket Letter. I'd like to show you some more details on this work today. I used the "Maple Leaves" stamps from Rubber Dance together with watercolors to color the background. The leaves were embossed with white powder which acts as a resist to the watercolors. I gave it some texture with some background stamping and stenciling.
Nachdem ich die ganze Seite in 9 Karten geschnitten hatte, wurde jede Karte individuell verziert. Dazu habe ich folgende Stanzschablonen von Die-Namites verwendet:

The Hanging Grapes are covered with Distress Embossing Powder "Peeled Paint" and "Dusty Concord". I adhered the parts of the Spring Doily with Distress Crackle Paint "Clear Rock Candy". That gives it a special look.
I colored the Wavy Vase with Distress Inks (Dusty Concord, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Wild Honey)
