Thinking of you

Hey!  It took lots of time but winter is finally here. If it is in your part of the world as freezing as it is in Estonia (even my Chow Chow don't want to be outside) I hope this sunny card will worm you up a bit. 

I used digi version from the new Thinking of You stamp set. It is printed to a watercolor cardstock and it's colored with Distress Inks (Salty Oceans, Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles).

I covered center of the flowers with Sakura Glue Pen and added Dark Chocolate Flocking on top. I also added some Sunny Daze glitter to the petals with help of the Sakura Glue Pen.

I sprinkled Magic Speckle Embossing Powder all over the watercoloured image and melted it with heat tool from underneath. I like the look of it.
I added 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape across the card and adhered strip of Green MonAmi Gabby Diamond Mesh on top of it. Rest of revealed tape was covered with Sunny Daze Glitter. I also draw two straight lines with Sakura Glue Pen and added Sunny Daze Glitter on top of them too.

For the matting layer I used yellow cardstock and added 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to all edges. Tape was covered again with Sunny Daze Glitter. I also glued single pieces from green Diamond mesh to all corners.
