Hello Blog readers — it’s time for another guest design spot here on the Cropstop blog. Today we’re sharing an absolutely beautiful friendship card created by Diane Hover of Nellie’s Nest. Here’s what Diane says about putting this gorgeous card together:
“I made a bright and cheerful card today thinking as cold and dreary
as it is here in Michigan, it just might perk me up!
I started with a favorite product of mine
I first misted water on my card stock,
then tapped the bottles onto the wet card stock.
I added a bit more water to get a bit more design.
You want to be a bit light on the water, so you don’t end up ‘muddying” the colors.
Also a warning, these color bursts can be a bit addictive!
I then used a Poppystamps Velvet Blossoms die to cut out my flowers.
take a container, add some glue and a bit of water from your
water brush, stir it around then ‘flick’ it on your flowers,
then add Wow Glitter, I used Tangerine.
To finish the flowers I added Black Flower Soft to the centers.
I embossed a white card stock panel with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder,
added a Tim Holtz bird cage die cut
The butterfly is from Memory Box
and the sentiment is Stampendous.
I added a bit of twine to finish.”
