Hello !!

Hello friends,
I have a card to share today and it was made using Neat and Tangled stamp and dies which I have been hoarding for quite sometime now!
This is my first buy at a stamp and die combo and I was like a kid with a new toy while trying it out :D ...I stamped and colored all my images on the Fabriano Brustro watercolor paper and believe me this paper is a pain to fussy cut with especially with tiny images, but thankfully I had the cordinating die set to rescue :)

So here's a look at my card ...I have clicked it in all angles possible because I loved it that much :D




I told you didn't, I ?
Okay, so a little bit about how I went about creating this ...All the elements on my card are stamped and die cut ..The embroidery hoop does not have a co-ordinating die ..Its an another stand alone die which you can buy separately but alas I didn't have it so I improvised with my circle dies to cut the inner circle the outer part was fussy cut then watercolored with Vintage photo Distress ink and embossed with the Darice Woodgrain embossing folder to give it a more natural look. All the flowers and leaves and even the butterfly were watercolored with a combination of Distress inks and the Nirmal watercolors that I mentioned about in my last post here.
The background of my cardbase is embossed using Wendy Vecchi embossing paste to which I added a little bit of vintage photo ink and the stencil I used is from Winnie and Walter creative screenings (Do you see what I see).
Hope you all like my card.Would love to hear your views on it so do drop me a line :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges :

  16. Hussena, this card is gorgeous!!! I'm in love with the colors, the texture, the perfect placement of each floral and sequin. I've been on the fence about this stamp set, but you've officially convinced me that I *need* it! I just love what you've done with it on this card. And I'm thrilled to see that you not only played along once (your blue floral card was equally beautiful) but twice at our Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! Thanks so much!
