Just Be You

Hello Friends

I hope you are all doing well. It's nearly Friday yay!!!   I have been super busy this week. I got a huge last minute order for 60 graduation cards!! I just got finished with them last night so I wanted to make something fun to celebrate :)

I made this card for the Be Inspired Challenge over at the Unity blog. These are the colours I had to work with this month. You know I always like to do the colour challenge so these were good colours for me. I love Turquoise!

I used one of my newer stamps for this card. This stamp is called YOU it is part of the Brave Girls Club collection by Melody Ross. I just love her work she is so inspiring, she speaks from her soul. I love this stamp it says it all really.


So I used my watercolour paints and paint washed 3 sections of colour. Then I got out some vellum and stamped 2 of the same image with versamark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat set it. I cut the vellum down to size just to fit over the yellow section. I did not want to glue it down so I decided to use silver glittery washi tape to hold down the vellum. Next I added a row of rhinestones on the top and bottom of the card. I then took the second image I stamped and cut out the butterfly only and attached it on top of the original butterfly then added some more rhinestones. Finally I attached it to my white card base to finish.

I really like the way it turned out. It was a really fun card to make. I hope you enjoy it.
