We Create Subtles Collection Blog Hop

Welcome to March! This month we are showcasing the Subtles Collection and it was a little trickier than I had expected. My brain hasn't moved the colors around since the recent reorganization.

For this card I started by stamping and coloring the floral spray. Then I added the decorative cut out where I stamped the sentiment. Still too plain so I added the gold thread. Next up, the background. I only have a few to choose from so I am happy that this one was a carry over from the Holiday Catalog. I love it and I think it's a keeper. Lastly, I added Basic Pearls to the center of the flowers.

Here's a close up. Pretty sloppy but it works. Water coloring isn't meant to be perfect so don't stress when you leave white areas. You're doing it right.

Next up is Tanya. She will be using Flowering Desert. Click below:

  1. I love this! I love the embossing folder and that set/dies- but I love the colors you chose, the water colored look and the layout!

  2. Love the gold thread and pearl accents. Really adds a nice touch to the card.

  3. Awww this is so pretty! I love the Tin Tile embossing. Beautiful watercoloring too. What framelit did you use for the sentiment? It's cute!
