The theme for Kylie’s Top Ten Winners January 2019 Blog Hop continues to be “encouragement,” which is something that everyone appreciates receiving. The encouraging word I chose for today’s project is “welcome.” Whether you are moving to a new neighborhood, changing jobs, or joining a new group, it’s important to feel welcomed. Isn’t it great how our cards can touch people’s lives?
Today’s project began with beautiful, Floral Romance Designer Series Paper, and was built from there. The colors in this paper are absolutely yummy, and brought out the desire in me to do some watercoloring. Using Watercolor paper, the Aqua Painter made it easy to apply ink (Petal Pink, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz) to the foliage. The foliage is from the Wonderful Romance stamp set, and cut with Wonderful Floral dies.
I used two Rectangle Stitched dies to create the frame from a gorgeous, leafy print of Floral Romance DSP. The frame was raised on Foam Adhesive Strips for added dimension.
The oval piece with a cut-out edge is also from the Wonderful Floral die set, and in the color of Sahara Sand.
The word, “welcome” is in the only dark color, Fresh Fig, and cut with a Well Written die. I wanted “welcome” to be prominent.
I chose the neutral color of Sahara Sand for the card base, and the background that I embossed with Pinewood Planks.
The final touch was the three Share What You Love Artisan pearls.
My original thought about this Wonderful Romance Bundle was that I had enough plants and flowers. I’m sure glad I reconsidered!
