Life is beautiful

Hello friends!! Hope you all are having a fantastic day! Today is a great day to celebrate, it's my Anniversary! Yep, a day like today my husband and I got married in a very breezy and chilly winter night in Lima, Peru, it has been 15 years and I am more than happy I am spending my time with him, many more years to come (with crafting too {wink, wink} )

Anyway, today I have a very simple card with one of the new stamps from the July release, this is Sunflowers stamp, beautiful background!

OK, let me show how I did it.
  • First, cut a piece of watercolor paper, sprinkle little bits of Color Burst, here I used Tangerine, Sepia, Yellow Ochre and Alizarin Crimson, then mist the powders and voila! Let the magic begin! You can let it air dry or use a heat tool to speed the process.
  • Then use a couple of the new Nuvo Glitter Markers and color the stamp with it, using your MISTI, stamp the image, here I covered the image twice with the reddish marker and once with the gold marker for the center of the flowers. Set aside to dry (it dries super fast)
  • To finish the card, I die-cut the edge with a border die, added foam under the big piece and tape on the thin side to create a little contrast. Then, embellish it with pearls and twine. Stamp the super cute "Life is beautiful" sentiment.

And to wrap this up, this is a sunflower from my garden from a couple of years ago! I love sunflowers!!
