I wanted to use these colours gently and went with water colouring my stamped then embossed images. My wrist Tendonitis continues so loose water colouring was perfect for the lovely Happiness Abounds bundle.

  1. Start with a Basic White card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
  2. Use Tahitian Tide ink and a Blending Brush to add colour to the right hand side of the card base where the detail will be revealed by Die cutting
  3. Cut another piece of Basic White card stock to measure 9cm x 13.4cm and use the detailed Die in the top right corner of the card the cut the matte layer. Adhere to the card front using Dimensionals
  4. On a piece of Shimmery white card stock stamp all the flowers and leaves in Versamark™ink and sprinkle White embossing Powder over the top and set with the Heat Tool
  5. Colour the images using the ink pad (see below) and a Water Painter. Use the coordinating dies to cut out all stamped images 
  6. Arrange the blooms and leaves on the card front and adhere using Dimensionals
  7. Stamp the Sentiment in Tahitian Tide ink on a piece of Basic White card stock measuring 8cm x 1.2cm. Once stamped angle both ends 
  8. Tie a 20cm length of the Tahitian Tide Twine and tie it in a double bow. Adhere to the right hand side of the card using a Glue Dot™
  9. Secure the sentiment to the bottom of the card using Dimensionals
  10. Adhere 5 of the Tahitian Tide Matte Decorative Dots to the card front as desired


Many thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will join us for this challenge.
