A Day of Happiness

Sharing with you another card I did for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges last week. I had so much fun, and made many cards to share.

To start this card, I did a background wash in yellow on watercolour paper and once dry I die cut the panel using my stitched rectangles. In my Misti, I stamped the flowers and heat embossed using white embossing powder, and proceeded to watercolour using my Zig brushes. I added gold paint to the centre of the flowers. 

To put it all together, I attached my background panel to my card base inside my Misti, using the grid lines to ensure everything is straight. I die cut the brick panel using the watercolour paper for the texture, and fussy cut along the right edge, then attached to my panel using matte glue. For the flowers, I used the foam pad from my Misti and styled the flowers with my stylus, then arranged on my card, attaching either with glue or on foam dots for more dimension. I die cut a few small leaves in watercolour paper and painted them with my green Zigs and attached with matte glue. As I do this all in my Misti, it is easy for me to now stamp my sentiment where I want it to be using intense black ink, and I finished by adding a few sequins. 

I hope you enjoy this card, and thank you for visiting my blog today.
