Club Scrap Technique Challenge: Club Scrap

The challenge this month was to use Water Color Pencils and color an image.  Well this stamp said Tile and birthday.  So this is what I cam up.  Stunning I say!!!

Lets see how I made it:

I started with the stamp on Water Color Paper.  My favorite paper is Strathmore 400 series in 140# Cold Press.  A bit thicker and definitely more thirsty than some, but I find it doesn't buckle as much and holds up to a ton of water.  First stamped in a grey archival ink and then  I colored the image with my Derwent Watercolor pencils.  After all the coloring was finished, I used a water brush to activate the pencil and move the color around.  Adding more as needed to created shading.  
After activating with water.  I could not resist embellishing this image.  So I doodled around the edges and on the stamp itself.  Then added Wink of Stella in Clear to give it just a hint of shine.
This was cut to size and matted on Purple and Gold Cardstock.  The purple is from Moroccan Spice Kit, the gold is a Core'dination card stock.

The rest is easy.  The card measures 5 X 7 "  So a card base of that size was cut out of the Red Paper from Moroccan Spice.  A mat was cut out of the Purple and Gold paper and measures: 4.75 X 6.75 "
A scrap piece from the background mat, was turned over, stamped and heat embossed with Gold Fine Detail Embossing Powder.  I added ribbons from the Kit, Done!!
