So Very Blessed for Neat & Tangled



I had so much fun during last month's Neat & Tangled collaboration with Cosmo Cricket that I thought I would make another card using the Just Add Watercolor paper pad.

This heart is from one of the cut apart tag sheets in the 12x12 pad.  I used Kuretake Gansai watercolors to color it.  Then I masked the sentiment from So Very Blessed, stamped it over the heart in Versafine, and clear embossed.



Then I added some stitching and embellishments.  I originally planned to use my clear sequins, but I couldn't find them (which, if you saw my craft area, is not at all surprising).  So, I used the white and pink sequins from the Full of Love sequin mix instead.  I stitched around the heart three times, stitching over the sequins as I went.  Then I finished it off with some Close to My Heart gems.

That's all for today, thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Neat & Tangled - So Very Blessed

  18. I seriously love everything you do, Miriam! Stitching through the sequins is great, and I like how the embossed lines show through on the sentiment so that it looks striped too. The different colored watercolor for the heart makes it stand out. Really fun card!
