you're so dreamy

hello hello!

today i'm sharing a card i made for the most current little tangles challenge - watercolor!

um, did someone say watercolor? ok, i'm in! lol! :)
here's my card - i do love it! 

i used the whimsical, beautiful and lovely little stamp set dreams from neat and tangled on my card! LOOOOOOVE that handwriting...swoon!!

so i decided to stitch the 'dreams' part of the stamp onto the card front panel. first i colored over the stamp in pencil and then stamped it onto the paper! lol! not very technical at all! then i poked holes along the word, and then erased the pencil and got to stitching! 

gold thread rocks! and i love the gold, and whimsy of the sentiment on that gorgeous background! i used lots of distress paint, water and my heat gun to make that background! love it!
lastly, i heat embossed in white the rest of the sentiment, and then adhered it to the card over some loose gold thread. 

oh, and that mint background frame is because i thought the card was toooooo warm! i had to cool it down a little! so i sprayed some heidi swapp mint shine onto a white cardstock and there you go! 



  1. oh wow, this is gorgeous...so bold and beautiful! have a great week.
