Beautiful Squared

Hi Again!!!  I know, twice in one day, how can that be?!?!?  LOL  I was inspired to make another card for the Be Square challenge over on Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  

  • Cut a 5" square piece of Distress Mixed Media Heavy Stock.  
  • Ink a 3" acrylic block with Distress Ink Salty Ocean and Evergreen Bough, spray with water and stamp onto paper pressing down really well to blend the colors.

  • Ink Evergreen Bough through the Tim Holtz stencil. 

  • Stamp Wildflowers with Embossing Ink.  Emboss with Sticky Powder
  • Add foil.

  • Ink edges of panel with Salty Ocean.
  • Doodle around 3" square.
  • Splatter with Distress Paint Black Soot thinned with water.
  • Add shadows to some stenciled squares with a Stabilo-All pencil and paper stump. 
  • Cut "Beautiful", a new A Way With Words cutting die, from both blue and cream papers.  Layer together and attach to panel.
  • Add Gl. Clear Wink of Stella to edge of panel, around 3" square and along bottom of word.
  • Attach panel to folded cream card.
