Here’s my card: img_4978_edited-1I used a stamp set from Uniko, Background Builders: Squared.  BBSquaredPPI used the emboss-resist technique.img_4335_edited-1 I did some heat embossing (one of my favorite techniques, using one of favorite tools)  and then watercolored in some different blue, greens and purples.  img_4338_edited-1I did some additional masking and added an ombré line of color along either side of the squares.img_4361_edited-1I stamped the sentiment and then attached the panel to a blue card base.
