Isn’t this card just stunning? It’s beautiful and peaceful! I just love it so let’s get started!

I started with a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) cardstock and stamped the greeting from the Beautiful You Stamp Set at the top. I did it after the fact in mine but it helps to do it first! Next, I stamped the girl from the same stamp set in Basic Black Ink onto the cardstock and then onto a piece of Window Sheet. Be careful when you stamp on the Window Sheet because it is slick! Then I flipped the Window Sheet over and placed it on the cardstock, matching it with the black squiggle on the bottom. Press over the window sheet to make sure the ink transfers to the cardstock. I love how it looks foggy and incomplete because that is how it would look as a reflection. Also, it helps make your card still look good when it doesn’t come out perfect! 🙂

For coloring, I used the Watercolor Pencils to color her dress and umbrella (Bermuda Bay & Rich Razzleberry). I used the Blender Pen to blend the color around! Then I went back through and added accents with the pencils. I didn’t trust myself to get the perfect watercolor wash for the puddle so I used the Watercolor Wash Stamp Set and Pool Party Ink. I stamped off once for a lighter look!

I really wanted a piece of Designer Series Paper for the left hand side but didn’t have any that was Rich Razzleberry. Then I realized I could make my own with the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper. Using the Sponge Brayer and Rich Razzleberry Ink, I colored the Designer Paper to match! Be sure to wipe off any excess ink to really make the embossed design pop! I added this piece to the left hand side of the card and tied some Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon around it! Next I adhered this piece to a Rich Razzleberry card base! I just love it!!!
