Papertrey Ink's August Create Along With Us

Today, I have a card to share for Papertrey Ink's August Create Along with Us,
where I was inspired by this card by the amazing Laurie Willison:


I love the watercolour wash that Laurie did over the embossed alphabet! 
I decided to create my card by heat embossing the leaves from Songbird
in white on my watercolour panel.


I coloured over them with my Zig Markers and some water and a paintbrush.
I trimmed out my panel and adhered it to a piece of white cardstock
using dimensional adhesive.


I stamped my sentiment (from Choose Joy) in 
versafine onyx black.

Thanks for looking!
