This fabulous quote is by Ariana Dancu and can be found in the Indigoblu Mindfulness #2 Stamp Set.
This card is perfect for someone going through difficult times, or who just needs an encouraging, positive word. I wanted to include a pocket on the front of this card for tags to hold secret messages or even a gift card or two!
My colour scheme for this pretty feminine card was Marshmallow Pink and Grandmas Teacup Blue. I watered down these acrylic paints and created a background. Acrylic paints can also be used directly onto the stamps, so I used a makeup sponge to dab the colours onto the Circle Dots stamp. I washed them afterwards before the paint dried on the stamp as they would be a little more difficult to clean!
I stamped the Circle Dots onto the edges of the card
Caitlin this stamp comes with a wonderful quote by A.A.Milne.
I stamped the beautiful Caitlin onto my background using a black versafine ink pad. I added some colour to her face and gave her pink and blue hair which I thought was fabulous.I would love to have that colour combination of hair!
I also stamped her on some copy paper which I cut out to use as a mask.Once she was safely masked I stamped the wings onto her shoulders, the wings are also from the Mindfulness #2 stamp Set.
I stamped the brilliant quote underneath her, and also gave her some bling on her wrist and ear, and to the centre of some of the circles. I used pretty sequins and little gems.
To make the pocket I used foam tape on the back of the picture, and measured the depth of the tags. I laid a line of foam tape under the tag depth so they would not disappear all the way down behind the picture. My card blank was 7x7 inches.
I made the tags in the same way, only this time I thought I would try embossing the Circle Dots Stamp. I adhered the picture to the base card, and after tying some pretty ribbons to the tags I slid the tags inside the pocket.
Encouraging, loving words could be added to the tags. Receiving a handmade card and a written note can mean so much.
Thank you for popping by today. I hope I have inspired you with this card.
Have fun xx
