HELLO and HAPPY FRIDAY!! =)
I'm up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog and I have the SWEETEST Thank You Card to share today!! =) I've used the Newly Released Winston's Honeybees Stamp Set along with the Hanging Around Stamp Set!! I wanted to create a Sweet Water Colored Scene and I LOVE the way it turned out!!
Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Border Builders Die Set from some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper!! Then in order to get the Stitched Edge all the way around my Cloud Shaped Panel I Die Cut it again using the Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats Rectangle Die Set!! I then Stamped and Embossed my Scene onto the Panel!! Then I used my Distress Inks to Water Color the Scene!! Now if you wanted a FUN One Layer Card you could STOP right there!! =)
I just CAN'T STOP though!! LOL!!
So I decided to add Dimension by Stamping and Embossing the Images again and Water Coloring them with the same Distress Ink Water Color washes and Fussy Cutting them out!! I wanted to add some Sparkle and Shine to the Wings of the Bees so I covered them with some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and then I coated them with some WoW Clear Embossing Powder!! I did this a Couple Times and SQUEAL!! I just LOVE the way it looks in real life!! =) Then I took my White Gel Pen and added some Highlight Dots to the Bee Bodies and to the Bee Hive !! I used the Black Soot Distress Marker to go around the Edges for a Clean Edge and then I used some Foam Tape to Pop them up off the Card!! A few Pretty Pink Posh Crystal Clear Sequins finishes off my Card!! I hope you feel INSPIRED!!??
