Non-Traditional Colors for a Girl Themed Card

Hello! It is time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy Design Challenge Blog. Our challenge title is Make It Girly. I am using an image from one of our sponsors, Little Blue Button Stamps.

The first thing that comes to my mind if I need to make something girly is pink, purple and flowers. I decided to go away from this girl concept of mine, and be non-traditional. I am using the green for my color scheme, and hearts for embellishment.

I printed the image on Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper. I colored the image using Stampin' Up Watercolor Pencils and Gansai Tambi watercolor. I fussy cut the image leaving a small white border around it. I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the crown, then set this aside to dry.

I am using three shades of green Paper Source cardstock (Jade, Peacock and Mint) cut at 4 1/4"x 5 1/2". I repeatedly die cut a retired My Favorite Things Fluttering Hearts die to the panel. I trimmed 1/4" off the edges. I die cut the sentiment using Pretty Pink Posh Hello Friend die. I die cut four of this sentiment. I adhered the sentiment die cuts on top of each other to create a chipboard-like embellishment. I created a sentiment strip by heat embossing a Lawn Fawn Love Letters sentiment on vellum using white embossing powder.

Assembling the card, I adhered the heart die cut panel to one of the green cardstocks. I adhered the sentiment strip and the stacked die cut sentiment. I adhered the image using foam adhesive.

I just bought this heart sequins at Target and luckily, it fits perfectly on the negative heart spaces of the die cut panel. I scattered a few of these hearts on the panel. I adhered a Martha Stewart Heart Glitter on top of the red heart to mute down its red color.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
