Follow Your Dreams

Hi everyone! I am just so in 'WOW' of this card I made! I had another idea of mine in my head and I wasn't sure if it would come together. I could see the vision of it in my head but sometimes when you try it on paper it doesn't always go as planned. In this case it sure did!

It's really not that hard of a card to do. I took a black piece of cardstock and layed my template over it. For my template I actually used a 12x12 piece of cardstock paper (creative imaginations-samantha walker). I then used 'perfect pearls' (by ranger) in colors forever blue and forever violet. To set the color in place and as well to make the colors bolder I used an adhesive (any stamp/glue pad for powders will do). Put the adhesive down first before the perfect pearls :) After adding the colors how I wanted them, I removed my template and lightly tapped off any excess powder. I them stamped on my quote (stamp by impression obsession). The ink I chose to use was 'frost white' (colorbox).

That about sums it up! Thank you again for stopping by and have a great week! :)
