Card challenge #3: You are Awesome & Beautiful (mixed media card)

I have a card to share today! I think it is nice to send a card to a friend or a family member to say Hello, and also to say how awesome and beautiful that person is! It would brighten their day, don’t you think?

You are Awesome & Beautiful card with texture paste

         I started with a watercolor cardstock. For the background, I took a stencil from Martha Stewart’s Arabesque stencils and used it with texture paste. I love how it gives the card dimension. The I used Ripe Persimmon distress ink which is a ‘red/orange/coral-ly’ ink to give it some color. Then I mixed up the ink on some packaging and “smoosh” it onto the cardstock to get the splat effect.

Stamp sets used :- Hero Arts Stamp&Cut ‘Thanks’ and My Mind’s Eye ‘Beautiful’. I stamped the sentiments on two labels and pop it up with foam tape for extra dimension.

I found some coral colored embroidery floss and loops it around and use it as a focal point for the card. I added clusters of sequins for the finishing touches to the card. I then mounted the card onto a grey card base.
