Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop - Showers of Blessings



Hello! I'm so excited to be participating in today's Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop! Paulina is one of the sweetest people on the planet, so I couldn't help but jump at the chance to be a part of her hop when asked! :) 

To create my card, I started by first cutting a piece of watercolor paper down to 4 x 5.25", then added a watercolor wash on the background before zapping it with my heat tool.  Once it was dry, I added some splatters of a darker shade of the same watercolor, then set that aside to dry completely.  While I was waiting, I stamped the larger cloud outline from Rainy Days in Versafine ink, then stamped it with one of the happy faces.  Call me crazy, but you can't help but smile when looking at those cheery clouds, they are just too cute! :) After I finished stamping the three clouds and faces, I die cut the images using the Rainy Days dies.  Next, I stamped the bird image from Birdie Notes in Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear powder before coloring it in with Zig Clean Color Markers.  


While the bird was drying, I stamped the umbrella image in a light lime green (though it looks more yellow in my pic), and die cut the pieces using their coordinating dies before adhering the pieces together.  The Stitched Essentials 1 die was then used to cut out a yellow polka dot tag.  Next, the sentiment was stamped in black ink (love that font!), and an aqua satin ribbon/bow was adhered to the top of the layer.  The watercolor panel was then adhered to a kraft woodgrain card base with foam tape.  Once the bird image was dry, I glued the 4mm Strawberry Burst Sequins to her chest to give it some sparkle.  I then began assembling the pieces and adhering them as shown.  To finish up, I embellished with enamel dots and 6mm Clear Droplets
