For my card today I used the new Holly- Spring chicken stamp set along with sentiment from Puddle Jumper. To make the card I started with a panel of water color paper measuring 3 3/4" x 5" and stamped the little chicks using Raven hybrid ink and quickly embossed using clear embossing powder. I stamped the same chicks on stamp masking paper cut them out and masked the ones on the watercolor paper. Once masked I stamped the image and again quickly embossed with clear embossing powder.
I used liquid watercolors to color the image. Once done, I let it aside to dry.
In meantime I stamped the sentiment using Watermark ink on vellum and embossed with white embossing powder. Cut to size and adhered to the dried watercolor panel.
To finish it off I adhered the watercolor panel onto navy color top folding card.

I had issues with YouTube, so the video for this card will be coming later today (fingers crossed)

Using gold foil I  "stamped" the sentiment from Get Well foiled impressions from Picketed Fence studio and then die cut. Adhered to the panel. 
To finish off the card using fun foam I adhered the panel to top folding light gray card base and added some Nuvo drops.
