Dutch Treat

This card just had to be made.  Sitting on my table right next to each other were my set of Dutch Doll stamps from Class Act, Inc. and my copy of the Technique Junkie Emboss or Die CD which, among 78 other awsome techniques, includes the Faux Delft Tiles technique I used here.  How could I not made a card like this?

To create my center tile, I stamped the windmill image with Versamark ink onto watercolor paper, and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  Next, I spritzed the entire piece with water and watercolored with several different shades of blue.  When I diecut the tile, I also embossed the edge and then watercolored the edge with brown, using the embossing as a guide.  The blue mat is cut and embossed from Core'dinations paper and then sanded.

Thanks for stopping by my studio.  Have a great day!
