VIDEO | You Are Awesome

Hello there, I am back today sharing another card using Create A Smile products. Today I am using the beautiful Botanical Love stamp set and also a sentiment from the Friends In The Woods set. As soon as I saw the large flower image in the Botanical Love set, I knew I wanted to watercolour with it, so that is what I am doing today.

I started off with a piece of TH Watercolor Cardstock that was cut using a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle die. I then stamped the flower using Versamark ink and heat embossed with HA white embossing powder. I then watercoloured the image using TH Distress markers. I have to say, I love the new Cracked Pistachio colour!
The sentiment, from the Friends In The Woods set, was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on to some more watercolour cardstock and cut out. The watercoloured panel was adhered to a SSS Fog A2 card base with fun/funky foam, and the sentiment piece added on top with foam tape. I have finished off by adding a couple of Doodlebug sequins and a rhinestone.
Here is the video showing how I made it:

Here are the links to what I have used on the card and the supplies in the video. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.

DISTRESS MARKERS: Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough, Brocken China, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass.

There is a new Create A Smile release out on Friday, please pop over to the Create A Smile Blog to see peeks of the new stamps. Thanks so much for visiting me today, I hope you have a lovely one.
