For my last card of the hop, I wanted to stretch a bit and try some water coloring.  I have seen some really beautiful water colored cards out in blog land and felt quite inspired.  I created a background and then embossed my mum over the top. I water colored the mum, distressed the edges and stamped my sentiment. Finally, I worked in some navy seam binding!

I hope that you have enjoyed this month's hop. Make sure to work on the tutorials and show us what you have made by August 26, 3pm CT and don't forget to comment! Come back on August 27th to see if you are a winner!!  Thanks for stopping by!
