Good afternoon!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes, Crop Stop Party #38 and Scrapy Land #88.

I fell in love with Lisa Hetrick's Water Color Ghosting Technique (say that 10 times fast!), her card was magnificent.  Here is her Video.

And I found a new Designer, Rachel Tessman, she is a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and has a great Blog and Videos on YouTube.  Here's the Video on this Flip Fold Style Card.

I combined the 2 Techniques.

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; Birthday Blessings, Folk Filigree and French Flair.  Stamped in Raven Black ink and colored with Copic Markers. 
WOS all over wine glass.  Circle Link Embossing Folder.

My background was sponged and stamped in Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio Oxide inks, and then spritzed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in White.  I also stamped the images in Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise inks.  My images looked like they 'blurred' too much so then I over stamped the large grape clusters in Raven Black ink, I kind of like how they came out.  I also die cut 2 rectangles using the MFT Cross Stitched Rectangles set.  Sentiment was die cut using the Spellbinders Classic and Scallop Ovals sets.

Inside image stamped in Raven Black ink.

This is a fun style of card.

Thanks for popping by!
