PTI Bloghop Post #2

April-Blog-Hop-InspirationAnother entry for this lovely bloghop inspiration! This card was such a blast to create as it was a new technique I decided to give a try: I began by selecting a thick, heavy coverstock in cream from Paper And More (my very favorite cardstock supplier!) and ran it through my Big Shot with an Anna Griffin for Cuttlebug Poppy embossing folder. Then, I got out my Faber-Castell water soluble penciles and started laying down color in the debossed areas. Then, I went in with my Aquash brush (LOVE!!) and started moving color around. Next was die cutting and stamping the large "Happy" sentiment from embellished elegance (looove) . I placed dimension adhesive both under "happy" and the watercolored panel and mounted it on a cream cardstock base. I selected the "everything" sentiment finished once again from Embellished Elegance and finished it off with 3 purple pearls. I think it came out quite well... hopefully you do too! :)

Here is a close up. I actually clear embossed this sentiment with Ranger Ink's Holographic Embossing Powder... I just love the added depth and 'bling' it gives, while still not being too overpowering!
