Hi, again! I hope you enjoyed the long weekend. The best part is we now have a short week! Double win!
When I was young, I had a turquoise dream catcher above my bed. Today’s card was inspired by that memory. I hope you like it!
When I first saw this leaf from Winnie & Walter’s In Bloom: Renee’s Leaves, I immediately thought of feathers, which prompted this design. I stamped the “feathers” with Versamark onto vellum and heat-embossed them in white before fussy cutting them. To make the hoop part of the dream catcher, I taped two circle dies together and die-cut four blue circle frames. I stamped “Wishing you” from Winnie & Walter’s Wishing You set onto a vellum circle and heat-embossed it in gold. I adhered that circle and the feathers to one circle frame and layered the others beneath.
The background was so fun and easy to create! I ink smooshed the following colors of Distress Ink onto watercolor paper: Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, and Twisted Citron. With my heat tool, I dried each color before adding the next. After the panel was dried, I trimmed the sides, adhered it to a dark pink card, and glued the dream catcher on top. I stamped a companion sentiment from the Wishing You set with Versamark onto purple cardstock and heat-embossed it in gold. I trimmed the strip down and popped it up with foam squares onto my card. A few sequins from Simon Says Stamp ‘s Crystal Reflections sequins finish the card.
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the ‘net. I hope you have a wonderful day!
