You Are Beautiful!!

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I'd love for you to stop by and say hi HERE :)


For my card today, I'm showcasing my favorite die from the June "Life as a Diva" release, Whispers Hairdo. For the background, I used watercolor paper and Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade. The edges were lightly distressed with a Zutter DIA.


Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste was used through a Crafter's Workshop Cosmic Swirls stencil. Several different Tim Holtz stamps were randomly stamped with Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. The crinkle ribbon was inked with the same Distress Inks as the background. The button in the center of the ribbon is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button Die.


I cut the Whispers Hairdo Die twice in black cardstock. One was covered with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating, the other offset for a shadow effect.


The "Life as a Diva" release is perfect with the new Craftin Desert Divas Be Inspired stamp set. You are Beautiful is from Be Inspired. The arrow is a Die-Versions Wee Petites This Way die.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
