You're beautiful ♥

Hi friends!

It's Monday ~  and that means I share with you a card from 

Today's card is my 'artwork wonder' :)
It's always fun to try something new ~
not only does it keep you from getting stuck in a rut,
but you just never know what you'll create.
This vivid and bright card is exactly that!

 For today's card, I used the #bff stamp set
and ....  a notebook!

Recently, I spied several notebooks in a store that caught my eye. 
While I didn't need another notebook or journal, these were quite different :)
The front covers reminded me of stencils ...
and an idea was formed!

 I had some Yupo paper in a stack on my desk and 
decided to use a few sheets for water coloring.
With the orange sunburst notebook (stencil),
I used my Kuretake Gansai watercolors and splashed the colors around,
let it dry and added some coordinating enamel dots.

While it was drying, I stamped out the sentiment 'You're beautiful'
from the #bff stamp set in versafine ink and white embossing powder,
and set it with a heat gun.
It's diagonally cut to match the angles of the pattern,
and propped up on 3D foam for dimension.

And that's it for me today using The Project Bin stamps!
You can find all the stamp sets and card samples in the gallery
by clicking on each of the stamp sets.

Thanks for your visit today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
