Amazing You

Hey Crafters!

I'm back after a week off to bring you this classy card!

When I saw the Amazing You stamp set from Aletenew, I totally fell in love! And I immediately knew the first thing I wanted to do with these images.

I broke out my Zig Clean Color Markers and went to work!



I stamped the images on watercolor paper in Antique Linen distress ink so that I could do some no-line watercoloring techniques. I wanted to keep the main focus of the card pretty simple so that I could add some unique touches. After finishing the watercoloring, I chose one of the sentiments from the stamp set and heat embossed it in the lower right corner using Liquid Platinum embossing powder and Versamark Ink.

I used the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitch Rectangle Stax Die to cut my card base and then also cut a kraft cardstock piece to serve as a matte for the top of the card base.



I trimmed down the watercolor panel and then hunted around for some lace scraps that I had in my fabric bin. I tied a lace bow around the card panel and then mounted it to the card base using some foam tape. I added a cute clothespin to the panel for a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today to take a look at my card! Have a great weekend!
