A Card That Brings Back Memories!

This card brings many memories.  I have two sisters and we has so much fun together when we were younger... playing outside.  This image reminds me of when we would play tag!  Anyone else ever play tag?

Rubber Stamp Depot - Three Sisters image
Black ink
Black Embossing Powder
Kaiser Craft Botanical Odyssey
Water Brush
Niji Paints
Giant Image Rhinestones
Double Stick Tape
Glue Stick
Tacky Glue
Card Base

For this project all papers are from the Kaiser Craft Botanical Odyssey 6 1/2 inch pad.  In the back of the pad are 4 pages of die cuts, I incorporated a few on the card.

First, choose a piece of Kaiser Craft Botanical Odyssey to stamp the Rubber Stamp Depot - Three Sisters image with Black ink, then emboss with Black Embossing Powder.

This sheet of the Kaiser Craft Botanical Odyssey is perfect... it provides a light patterned background for the images.

I love layers, the Kaiser Craft Botanical Odyssey paper pad provides a lot of choices of paper that compliment each other... Pictured I have a base mat for the card and other pieces I plan to layer, plus several die cuts.  These and larger papers are adhered with Double Stick Tape and the die cut images with Glue Stick to the Card Base.

I did this a little backwards... I wasn't planning to colorize the image, but it looked a bit dull.  My Water Brush and Niji Paints did the trick.  Since my card was assembled I tried to use as little water as possible to keep the card from warping.
To add a bit of bling I cut a flower in half and adhered to the card with Tacky Glue!
Then on top of the flower add a Giant Rhinestones!!!
Here is a die cut tucked under one of the layers of paper!
