My back is feeling better and I am finally able to play in my crafting closet. And since the main reason I started this blog was to have a place to post my challenge cards, this will be my first challenge post.
First, I created a watercolor background on watercolor paper with distress inks. After I dried it with the heat tool, I used the MISTI to stamp the Sparkle & Shine sentiment in black. I then die cut the Hexastar Cover Plate from white cardstock. I adhered that piece to the watercolor layer before putting it back into the MISTI to stamp over the cover piece. Perfect alignment with the MISTI.
To create the diamond, I made 2 partial die cuts one from white cardstock and one from white glitter paper. I then cut out the diamond shape from these and stacked the outline pieces together to give it dimension. I inlaid the die cut triangle glitter pieces and added some Wink of Stella clear glitter to the sentiment to finish.
It may be non-traditional, but I’m thinking of giving this as a Mother’s Day card.
