Hello, hello, hello, hello


I just had to think of what would get you interested, four hellos, well thats as many as I used on this card, ok!!

Had an idea but went a bit south and wasn't quite what I was looking for, but got this look and I'm happy with it.

First I die cut a piece of watercolour card stock then I got three of the Distress Inks in pink, smooched onto my paint pallet then sprayed with shimmer mist. used a paint brush to add in sections and blended the darker and lighter ink for an in-between colour so they all ended up blended very well.



If you click on this image you can see the shimmer in the colours. I used tape each side of the die cut to make sure no watercolour ended up elsewhere on the front of the card.





I then attached a piece of silver glitter paper just under the die cut section to make the whole panel looks beautiful and sparkly. mes 

Die cut 'hello' four times out of different pink colours and glued them so they sat just above the curves of the previous one.

Finished the card off with some sparkly silver gems.

I would like to end this in:

Decided to follow Cornelia's advise and enter this in the

Love it all, but most especially those 4 hellos! I think it's a bit retro. You can really see the sparkle and shimmer on that background. Lovely job! Xx

This turned out so stunningly! I love the hello stacked as you have....it's an eye grabber. Also like the ombre trellis border with the fab glitter in the cut-outs. Just a beautiful card. Hope all is well with you, and TFS .

i love the die cut panel and all that shimmer makes this card so pretty aileen! unfortunately, the penny black and more challenge is a stamping challenge so it won't be entered in the draw. your other entry will be though and since you can enter up to three cards/projects, you still have time to submit another one if you'd like.
