Happy day to all of you!! If you are coming from Kathy Racoosin’s blog, welcome!
I am wicked excited to be celebrating with Danielle and Neat & Tangled on their 4th Birthday celebration blog hop!!
I had guest designed for Neat & Tangled back in 2014 so I was super excited to meet Danielle in person at CHA this year. We even got to share a room at a craft retreat this past spring- and although she wouldn’t let me spoon her- it was really fun to hang out with her 🙂 She and I both have an equal love for the ocean and all things beachy :). Someday we will be able to have our toes in the sand together!
My card was inspired by one of my most favorite sequins mixes, Pixie Dust. I just love the color combo and the touch of gold!
I started by die-cutting Neat & Tangled’s new Doily Tag Die. I painted it with Distress Ink Spray Stains in Tarnished Brass. I did a few coats to really get a nice shimmer.
Next I die cut the new Celebrate die. I watercolored the background with Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and the front with Picked Raspberry.
Lastly I did a simple ink smoosh on the background using Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. I did a few layers, heat setting in between.
Once I had the card assembled I finished it off with some sequins from the Pixie Dust Sequin Mix.
