I stamped the gorgeous PB First Blush image in Versafine Smokey Gray on watercolor paper. Then I painted Distress Inks peacock feathers, evergreen bough & pumice stone using a water brush. I also added some peacock feathers splatters. After it dried I overstamped with PB Music Background, lightly sponged the edges & stamped the Flourishes sentiment. This one was already mailed to a friend celebrating her 25th anniversary. I'm entering ATSM, PB&M, PBSC & Stamping Sensations.
I had Distress Ink left over from painting the previous card, so grabbed a scrap of watercolor paper & covered it using the smooshing technique.
The SSS Flickr challenge is to use a stencil, so I applied Delicata Silvery Shimmer over the beautiful SSS Heart Mandala stencil with a sponge dauber. I remembered THIS card made by my friend, Ros. Love the idea of a beautiful background with a sentiment, so I just added SSS Painted Hugs die cut.
The top layer is sponged with the silver ink & I attached it so there's a white shadow. The frame was made with Lil' Inker stitched rectangles & I added HA ombre sequins. I'm also entering CropStop & HLS Anything Goes with Dies.
Last is my entry for PTI CAWU. There's always lots of inspiration from the DT, but this time it was an easy choice for me. When I saw Dawn's Cover Up: Hexagons card colored with Zigs, I knew I wanted to do something similar using my Cover Up: Diamonds.
I used gold embossing & a combo of Zigs that's unusual for me: Orange, Pink Flamingo & Yellow. The sentiment from Corner Adorner: February was attached with foam tape. I used Summer Sunrise for the mat & finished off with clear gems. Can't wait to use the diamonds stamp again! I'm also entering Fusion just using the sketch. At least I hope this is close enough.
