You Are Beautiful Inside and Out (TLC675)

This card was created by adding distress ink onto acetate and smooshing it onto damp watercolor paper.  This technique creates really beautiful background, but it also can create some lovely die cut images and florals.The flowers are from the Spellbinder January Die of the Month and were cut from leftover watercolor background paper.  I wanted something bright and cheerful to accent the flower images and so another watercolor background was created using yellow distress inks.The yellow background was die cut using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX.  The die cut flowers were adhered to the watercolor panel with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  A small turquoise rhinestone was added to the center flower.The sentiment is from Penny Black’s Heartfelt and was stamped just below the flowers using Hero Hues India Ink Black.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller than the focal image panel and adhered to the back.To accent the color of the flowers some turquoise cardstock was found in my stash and die cut using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle.  A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The turquoise rectangle was adhered to the cardbase using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The focal image panel was adhered to the center using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.PRODUCTS USED:
