You Are Awesome

Hello everyone! I'm here to share card that I made recently.

I stamped the kingfisher from Inspired By Stamping Australian Nature I stamp set with Hero Arts black ink and colored it with Crayola pencils (no, not my daughter's, I bought a pack of 64 for myself :) ). I fussy cut it with scissors. 

I took a piece of white cardstock about 5 1/2" in length and 1 3/4" in width and adhered the bird toward the bottom of the panel. I could have stamped it on the panel, but I felt this gives it a bit more dimensional look.

 I stamped the sentiment You are Awesome from Inspired By Stamping You Are stamp set towards the top of the panel with Hero Arts black ink.

I took a top-folding A2 card base in navy blue color and stamped the circles from the Inspired By Stamping Polka Dots stamp set with versamark ink. I then applied Ranger Perfect Pearls - Pewter using a watercolor brush.

I repeated the polka dots till I was satisfied with the pattern.

Here's a look from another angle, to show the subtle shimmer of the Perfect Pearls.

Then I adhered the white cardstock panel at an angle to the card base and trimmed the edges that were hanging off the sides.

What do you think about this card? Please do let me know. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day and enjoy your weekend.
