Washi Hello

15E954D6-8167-47A9-BFF4-6FD6A403EE5DHello everyone!  Hope you are having a wonderful day!

This card design has been in my brain for awhile. Just needed the die.  Now that I have it…here’s the card.

The background has been debossed with the Dotted Scales debossing  plate which leaves a lovely border by using it vertically on a horizontal card.

I added two strips of the washi tape to a piece of cardstock so that I had the proper width for using the die.  Next, I watercoloured three heat embossed images from Beautiful Day.  I tried to approximate the colours in the washi with Distress Inks. They were then die cut with the matching dies .

Lots of sparkly sequins complete the card.

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

I added some washi tape to my panel, and stamped the image and sentiment. Next I picked a few Zig markers in similar colours and watercoloured the butterfly. I added shading and some Nuvo Crystal Drops for some pretty shine.

The panel was die cut and then I added some confetti…that’s it!  Quick and easy card.

FA1E387E-4BC8-49DD-9230-7E179C8B736EFor the 30 Day Coloring Challenge…the word today is subtle.

Decided to try a very light hand with colour today. I stamped the image repeatedly to fill the card front. Next I used two different Derwent Inktense pencils to add a wee bit of colour. If you aren’t familiar with them, they are a watercolour pencil.

I used a sentiment from the same set, stamped in black. Some washi and a smattering of sequins finish the card.

Back soon with more my sweet friends.
