sketch 261 from Freshly Made Sketches and the November 2016 Challenge from Altenew.
I started by embossing the flower and leaves from Altenew's Beautiful Day set in white detail powder over the smooth side of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I added the pink watercolor to the flower first, let it dry, then came back in with blue watercolor. The leaves were a single wash of yellow. After everything was dry, I fussy cut them all out with Micro-tip scissors.
Using a stitched die from My Favorite Things and cardstock from Close To My Heart, I framed the word TODAY and cut. I did another cut from Pacifica cardstock from CTMH and adhered the two together. I highlighted TODAY by painting a swish of the same yellow I used to paint the leaves. I used more MFT dies to cut the white base panel and the "hello" sentiment (two cuts of white, one of Pacifica). After adding the ribbon to my base panel, I mounted everything together.
Love this card...so much I might just keep it for myself!!
Until next time,
