Pretty Amazing


Here is the other card that I made for my swap. This was uses the Eastern Eclectic color scheme in the SU catalog.


I stamped the flower twice (once in Rose Red and the other in stamped off Groovy Guava). I cut out the flowers using my paper snips and then layered one on top of the other. I then added one of the flowers from the Felt Fusion set and attached everything together with a Fire Circle brad. I am so happy that the Faux Silk panel actually shows off all the sparkle from the Dazzling Diamonds (for once). I used an Old Olive and Cameo Coral marker to ink up the branch stamp. I then stamped this on tissue paper and then crumpled it up into a little ball. I then smoothed out the tissue paper and attached it to a Very Vanilla piece with modge podge and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds all over while the glue was still wet. Messy...but so worth it! The hummingbird was stamped on watercolor paper using Staz-On Black ink. I then watercolored with my crayons. I used some of the new Cosmo glitter to add a little bling to the hummingbird.


Here is a close up picture of the Faux Silk piece and hummingbird.
