Guest DT Sunday with Tessa Wise

Hello! It's Tessa Wise back to share a card I made with my new goodies from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store! I love the Solstice 6x6 paper pad by Pink Paislee- the patterned papers are so pretty and it just has that fall feel to it without being so themed. I paired it with the Dreams stamp by Neat and Tangled along with the banner dies and twine by Lawn Fawn:
3 I started with a piece of the patterned paper and cut it to fit my card front. I splattered it with gold mist and let it dry. I diecut the banner out of vellum and stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Staz On ink. I stamped it again onto some pink patterned paper and cut out around it. I added it to the banner using foam adhesive. I wanted the sentiment to stand out a little more so I cut out another piece of vellum to add underneath the banner. I cut it in a shape that kind of looked like a watercolor blob :) I wanted it to look like there was white watercolor behind it. To tell you the truth, I tried many times to actually watercolor the vellum but vellum and watercolor don't seem to mix well!
I adhered the vellum blog onto my card front and then added my banner over the top of it. I used the Kool Tac Clear Foam Adhesive strategically so you wouldn't see them through the vellum. I added the twine last, tying it to the left side. I curled the ends a bit as well by wrapping it around a pencil overnight.
I'm so happy I had the chance to guest design for my favorite online store! Thanks for having me!!
