So Grateful by Belinda

Good morning all, it's Belinda here this morning to share a project with you using the new Basket of Hope stamp set and a pretty background technique.  Let's get started on all the details.

To create the background for this project I used watercolor paper and distress inks.  The paper was covered with the distress inks using a blending tool.  Next I took a piece of paper towel and misted it with water.  The wet towel was placed on top of the paper and let sit on top for 30 minutes. 

The paper towel was removed and the background was revealed.  I love how the design on the paper towel was transferred to the background paper.  The inks blending together so pretty!

The sentiment was then stamped onto the background paper using Dust Rust Chalk Ink.  A little sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Bronze Splendor glitter.

The image was then stamped on to watercolor paper using the Tim Holtz's Platform and
StazOn ink.  The image was colored on the platform using Nuvo Aqua Markers.  Once the  colors were dry, I re stamped the image using versamark and heated embossing with Coffee EP.  That is the fun of using the platform you can re stamp as many times as you like.  The embossing over the watercolors looked so pretty!  The image was then fussy cut out.

Using a piece of fall ribbon I placed a strip of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape in the middle and removed the backing.  Sparkle was added to the ribbon using Creamsicle and Bronze Splendor glitter.  Small drops of Bottle Green Crystal Drops were added.

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day see you soon!
