My Favorite Things Sketchy Flowers Card Kit Countdown

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things May card kit countdown. This months card kit is called Sketchy Flowers and it includes two stamp sets, 2 Die-namics sets, card stock and coordinating colour envelopes.

For my card today I used the large 'You' stamp from the All About You stamp set included in the kit and heat embossed it on a panel of watercolor paper.

Once I had it completely heat embossed with white embossing power, I used my Prima watercolours to add colour to the card front. I used a mix of aqua, pink, green and purple to create my colourful watercolour panel.

I let it completely dry and then I diecut it using the large stitched rectangle in the Blueprints 29 Die-namics. I added a black cardstock mat behind it and then adhered the entire panel to a Wild Wisteria card base.

I stamped the secondary sentiment onto a strip of watercolour card stock with Black Licorice Dye ink and then I adhered it over the word 'you' using foam adhesive for some added dimension.

I finished the card by adding some Aquamarine sequins scattered around the sentiment with a bit of silver Stickles added to the centers.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas using this months kit! Thanks so much for stopping by today. ;)
