Water Colored Lights!

I have discovered I really like watercoloring!
I remember those watercolor books as a kid that you just dip that paint brush in water and
start brushing on the pages.  Well my technique is very similar!
I tap some Distress Ink or scribble some watercolor marker on a stamp block and just spritz with water and start painting!

By using Clear embossing powder, it gives the lights a very unique floating on air look!
A simple, quick and easy card!

Introducing AJVD's New Grandpa's Glass Series

This is a hard post to write, tomorrow it will be 6 months since my dad passed away (Jillian's grandfather).  It hasn't been easy as we miss him so much.  There are so many great memories we have together and one is all the stained glass he did for us and many others as gifts.  After retiring from farming he became a stained glass artist!
So Jillian decided we needed a series of dies to honor the memory of her grandpa.
Introducing Grandpa's Glass...
There are two dies in the series so far, Grandpa's Glass: Candles and Grandpa's Glass: Lantern
which is the one I used for this card.
They are designed to layer and mat with our Basic Rectangle Backdrop and our Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die sets for the perfect matting! Jillian and I love layering on a card!
Check out the blog post on the A Jillian Vance Design Blog here!

There are so many options with these dies, you could use vellum and color in the areas, inlay colored pieces such as the holly or candles, use for a luminary ~ the possibilities are only limited to your imagination!
