Inspired by a Dream Catcher

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!

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:  Winnie & Walter’s 3rd Birthday Bash: Ink Smooshing Challenge, Winnie & Walter’s 3rd Birthday Bash: Bright Colors Challenge, Winnie & Walter’s 3rd Birthday Bash:  Sequins Challenge, Winnie & Walter’s 3rd Birthday Bash:  Three Challenge, and Winnie & Walter’s 3rd Birthday Bash:  Mood Board Challenge.
