Sailboat at Sunset Bister Card


I am still having fun playing with Bister powders that I purchased at I Brake for Stamps here. If you click on the gallery on that page, you will see an earlier version of this card too. I liked it, but decided the card needed some more dimension, so I embossed one of the layers of white card stock (frame created with Nestabilities dies and embossing folder from Cuttlebug), and added a vellum sail to the sailboat. The "sunset" was created with red and yellow bister powders sprinkled on watercolor paper and then spritzed with water. The water was made with blue bister, of course, then I stamped the sailboat (also from I Brake for Stamps) and bleached out the sails.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Scribble and Scrap.

Happy crafting.
