Avery Elle Winter 2015 Blog Hop!

Hello, hello friends!

Today is super exciting because we are celebrating Avery Elle's new release with a blog hop.  I have a card to share today using the Dreamboat stamp set and coordinating Elle-ments dies.  

I started with a panel of watercolor paper and I added stenciled a circle for the setting sun with Mustard Seed ink. I masked the sun and added ink in the shades of Sapphire and Papaya

I stamped and die cut the cute couple in the gondola, colored it with Copic Markers and adhered it to a piece of Sapphire cardstock that I die cut with the Swim Team Ellements die.  I attached the layers to the watercolor panel, stamped the sentiment and adhered it to a note card from The Citrus Collection
