I'm sharing a card that literally took me about 20 minutes to make. I don't normally rush through a project like that but I was super lazy and left it to the last minute. THEN, my sister called and wanted to go to the beach and how was I supposed to say no to that!!? Thankfully, Katia is super cool and patient with me :)
I started by heat embossing some of the floral and leaf images from the beautiful Together We Bloom stamp set. And did you know that the CO-ORDINATING DIES were just released!!! Almost all of the stamp sets have matching dies..how awesome is that??!
I used Silver Pearl embossing powder from Ranger. It's my new favourite. It gives such a soft and shimmery look. White is nice but sometimes can be a little too stark.
I watercolored everything with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I haven't used them in quite some time and now I'm wondering why! They are so amazing!
I usually cut my panels down with some sort of frame die, but today I decided to leave it full size so I didn't cut off any of the loveliness. And as always, I did not think about the sentiment until the very end so to keep it small and simple, I stamped one of the sentiment from the You're So Ranunculus stamp set onto a strip of watercolour paper and snipped the "v" shape on either end. I foam mounted it in the centre of the card (it helped to break up the leaf overload in the centre).
To finish, I adhered some of the gorgeous Crystal Clear Sequins.
That's it for me today!! Wishing you an amazing week!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
