I absolutely enjoyed creating this card. Confession! The washi decorated card base was one that I had originally discarded a few months ago, but dug from the trash to set aside in hopes for inspiration! The inspiration came when working on this card and I wanted a colorful and striped base for a background. It worked perfectly!
The white panel is cut from a wonky stitch die I bought at Gina Marie Designs. She has a fabulous selection at such fantastic prices! I encourage you to check her website out! Tell her Bobbie Sue with Two38 Creations sent you!😉 www.wholesalecraftingsupplies.com
I love the simplicity of creating the top panel. It makes for such a beautiful card face. I taped off the sections (frog tape keeps the paper from ripping once removed). I brushed a good amount of clean water to the exposed spaces before applying my new (and gorgeous) Altenew watercolors. Next time I'm hoping to really perfect the gradual color effects!
The words are from 2 separate stamp sets by Unity stamp company. (I encourage you to check them out as well. www.unitystampco.com So many choices of the most amazing and deeply etched red rubber stamps I have ever used! Again, please tell them I sent you!) The "you are so" is from the sentiment set titled ~ there is no reason. I simply masked off the words that I did not want stamped in order to lay out the sentiment I was going for. The word "loved" is from a Donna Downey word set titled ~ adore. I stamped and then cut out with my scan n cut. (I am a disastrous fussy cutter.😄) I loved the use of the loosely placed black thread and the small wooden hearts. They completed my card in such a beautiful way.
There's something about a zoomed side view of a card that I just adore. I love the detail it highlights. Those splatters! They make me as happy as the yellow does!
Thank you for spending time with me today!
Until next time~

Be Blessed, friends!
