Graduation Congratulations!


Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a card to share.   I need a graduation card for a man!   Check it out!  I am playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge:  Watercolor Wash Background.  I chose to do the emboss resist option using Papertrey's Tropics stamp set.  I stamped the images in versamark, white embossed, then added different colors of ranger inks for my watercolor wash.  I added some splatters as well in shades of greens with a touch of some black.  




For my sentiment I used PTI Pen and Ink stamp set.   I cut a strip of Pure black card stock.  I stamped the sentiment in versamark and white embossed,  I created my own fishtail at the end with some snips.  I am using this week's CASE this Sketch as inspiration so all of my foliage is at the bottom and left edge.  



I must admit, while I was creating the background, I did not realize this sentiment was so large. I feel it covers up a lot of the background images.  I really did not have time to redo.  After I added the clear sequins it started growing on me, though.  It is quite manly so Win! Win! 


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
