Guest Design spotlight at Crafting by design - Thank you for the many wonderful things in my life

Wednesday August 12, 2015
 
I am the Guest Designer today at Crafting by designs..  and the theme is Lots of layers..
 
Thank you so much for asking me to be a guest designer. I feel privileged and I hope you like my card..
I hope you all play along and enter your card over at Crafting by designs..  Just add lots of layers
 

This is my card.. I made the water color background using Ranger inks and just swiped them on my craft sheet then spritzed with water and laid my wc paper in it.. dried the card and kept dabbing the wc paper till I got the effect I wanted...I love the summer warm feel of the background. I won this flower stamp from DRS so I chose to use it and stamped it in black and went different heights and used an old grass stamp I have to give a little movement below the flowers. I added the sentiment from Simon says and a butterfly die from Taylored expressions.. added some bling down the body. I layered the image and strip of green on a pink card base from bazzil.. wanted to tie the pink in the wc paper to the base and butterfly. I  tell you in real life this card is really awesome.. in my eye's that is.. lol.
I hope I have inspired you to enter your card over at Crafting by designs..  lots of layers

This card is so lovely! The colors you've blended together are incredible and I love the texture within the colors. The subtle splotches give it that wonderful watery feeling-- like a fairy garden or something magical! I also love the sentiment, which could come in handy on so many occasions. The dimensional butterfly is stunning and the whole thing really is a work of art! Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
