I think these two combos worked well together!! I got brave and decided to do some water coloring for my card. When I saw the color combo picture, I immediately thought of water color. So - that is what I tried my hand at. I started die cutting my water color card stock from Tim Holtz with the largest of the Small Stitched Square frame dies from Lawn Fawn, and then I prepped my card stock with my embossing buddy powder bag for embossing. I embossed all of my images with my Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, and heat set it with my heat tool. Then, I used 5 Distress Ink colors to do my water coloring - Evergreen Bough, Worn Lipstick, Old Paper, Gathered Twigs, and Shabby Shutters. If you watch the video you will see I had a lot of area to cover, but I think the end result turned out pretty well! Once I was done with the water coloring, I sprayed my piece with Mister Huey's Shine Spray Mist and it gave it something extra and it didn't look so flat. I then prepared the rest of my elements by die cutting a piece of pattern paper from an older 6x6 pad I had. I used the Neopolitan 6x6 from Dear Lizzy. I die cut it using the Large Stitched Square frame and I created my card base from a piece of Butter Mints card stock. I cut it down to 10 x 5 and scored it at 5 inches to create a square card. I adhered my pieces together and called it done!
