MCT Try It Tuesday


It's Try It Tuesday with My Creative Time, and today we are making cards with windows in them!  I started with an A2 size card base and then made a layer with watercolor paper that I edged with the MCT Fun Stitched Edges Dies.


I'm currently taking Online Card Classes' Watercolor for Card Makers, so I tried playing with some of the techniques I learned for this card.  First I heat embossed some swirls and leaves from MCT's Springtime in Paris with white embossing powder.  Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to watercolor over it.  I stamped the inks on acrylic blocks and spritzed water on them and then used that to paint on top of the embossing.  I also painted the scallops on the layer below to make it match. I then cut a square for the window and used MCT's Stitched Mini Frame around it, adding a cute little flower from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies in the corner.


Here's a pic of the inside.  The sentiment is from MCT's It's All About You.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have to share with you today!
