Guest Designing With Concord & 9th

Hello! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! It was cold here! 
I am so thrilled to be a guest designer for Concord & 9th for their January release! If you are not familiar with this new stamp company, you need to stop by their website HERE. They have some beautiful products and they are one class act in my opinion :)

Their new January release is so pretty! I had so much fun working with these new stamps and dies!

I watercolored a bluish background first, then cut the Layers of Love heart shaped die out of white card stock. I stamped the sentiment from the Layers of Love stamp set below in black ink, and then adhered this to my watercolored panel with foam tape. I cut the floral clusters out of watercolor paper and watercolored them with some pinks and greens then added them with glue dots. I cut one of them apart and added some of the pieces in randomly to create the little cluster at the bottom.  I added a few of pink 3mm sequins to finish off my card.

This card actually came together pretty quickly and I love how it turned out! I can see so many fun possibilities with these beautiful dies!
