I Am Totally Blessed

We can find inspirations for around us to create. I love finding inspirations from my family, my daughters’ art works, our backyard, pictures I took when we went camping and hiking, others cardmakers, and of course Pinterest, ets. When you stop and look around, you’ll find the inspirations you need 🙂

And today, I am inspired by this photo when I created my card from Addicted To Stamps and More Challenge 210 – Photo Inspiration

Challenge #210


I created that watercolor wash background using Tombow Dual Brush pens. I simply scribbled the blue, teal and hot pink brush pens on my craft mat and sprayed some water, then I dipped a piece of CTMH Watercolor paper. I dried it with my CTMH Craft Heater in between of adding more colors on it. Once I was happy with the wash of colors on it, I dried it one more time. And then I used my WRMK Evolution Advanced diecutting machine and Craftin Desert Divas – Fancy Frame Dies to cut the scallop stitched shape panel.

I stamped the arrow from STAMPlorations – Mixed Media Grunge set with Ranger Archival Ink Pad. And then I stamped the I Am using CTMH Alpha stamp set and Ranger Archival Ink Pad. After the stamping, I added the word Totally Blessed that I die-cut them out of out Craftin Desert Divas – Greeting Word Dies. I watercolored the die-cut words with the soft green Tombow Dual brush pen it will match with one of the color from watercolor wash background. I added the die-cut words on the card with glue pen.

I finished the card by adding the finished panel on a black card base with Scrapbook Adhesive runner and adding some pearl gems on it.

That’s my card for today. I hope you are inspired to create something pretty today 🙂

Thank You for visiting and have a fabulous blessed day!
