Today is the 1st January here and I was relaxing after lunch and suddenly had an idea. I had an idea of a card for the A2Z Scrapbooking Blog Challenge. You need to use at least one Hero Art product. Well with all the wonderful background stamps, stamps and dies I have that are Hero Art thats not hard to do.
In this instance I have stamped this flower background and white embossed on watercolour paper. Not a great quality paper (actually an El Cheapo from the local $2 store). Might be cheap paper but it is so easy to use with the Peerless Watercolours, no pilling and the colours spread beautifully.
After I had finished painting, I then went over most of the flowers with Wink of Stella. After it had dried I then die cut the 'BeYoutiful' word out. I cut out an additional three layers in black cardstock.
I added a half layer of hot pink and the other half of purple shinny paper to the front of the card.
I glued the watercoloured panel on top, added a black die cut to make sure everything was glued in straight then added the weeny bits of painted pattern that had been removed with the die cut word, right down to the itty bitty bit of the inside of the 'y'. Once they were in place I added another 2 other layers of black die cut then finally the die cut water coloured word. I have done this before but like this card soon much better.
A few sequins here and there and then I decided to add glossy accents to the die cut word. It was still wet when I took the photo and I had to watch for run off.
Quite pleased with the end result.
I would like to enter this before the challenge ends at
