Kindness Is Beautiful

I love all kind of flower stamps. Digital stamps are the best if you need a quick card. Sparkle N Sprinkle digis will come not only as a line art but also in colored versions. So you can dedicate your time to the card background. 

Materials used:

Glitters: Hickory [GM2044], Daisy [GM2019];
Embossing Powders: Melon Twist [EP402], Lemon Chiffon [EP315];
Inks: Nuvo Hybrid Ink Acorn Brown [213N], Versamark [VM001], Distress Ink (Picked Raspberry);
Coloring Medium: Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolors Autumn Woodland [890N] (Spiced Ginger), Nuance Watercolor Powder Hot Pink [MNU005], Memento Dual Marker (Tuxedo Black);
Dies: Spellbinders (Labels Eighteen);
Adhesives: Large Nuvo Glue Pen [204N], 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT01], Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky];
Cardstock: White, Watercolor CS;
Embellishments: Nuvo Jewel Drops Sea Breeze [646N], Round Embossed Sequins [Q6-001];

I used one of the colored images from Bearded Iris Digital Version set. To cut it out, I placed the die from Spellbinders Labels Eighteen set on top of the image, traced the inner frame from the die with pencil and fussy cut it out. Edges of the shape were covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. Matting layer is die cut with the same Spellbinder die out of cardstock. I covered the edges with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Hickory Microfine Glitter. To add more interest to the flower, I printed out the same flower again and fussy cut the blossom. I added some details with Sakura Glue Pen and Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes and Daisy Microfine Glitter.

The sentiment is also from the Bearded Iris Digital set. It's printed out on the white cardstock and fussy cut with scissors. I added sparkle to it with Sakura Glue Pen and Gilding Flakes.

The most time consuming / fun thing about my card was the background. I used the Watercolor cardstock and colored it with Spiced Ginger from Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolors Autumn Woodland set and Hot Pink Nuance Watercolor Powder. After it was dry, I placed it into the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and stamped the Music Background with Acorn Brown Nuvo Hybrid Ink. Then I added Large Nuvo Glue Pen in few places directly to the stamp and pressed the impression on top of the stamped background. After the glue was dried tacky, I covered it with Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes
I added Versamark ink to the two corners of the background, sprinkled Melon Twist and a bit of Lemon Chiffon Embossing Powder on top and heat embossed. 

I used Round Embossed Sequins to embellish my card. Some of them are covered with Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops.

I adhered 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape across the background and placed some Round Embossed Sequins on it. Rest of the tape was covered with Daisy Microfine Glitter.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Hickory Microfine Glitter.
