DV #158 Square Cards

Our challenge today at Dream Valley is a lovely easy one, at least for me because it’s my favourite shape, square cards.

We are sponsored by Star Stampz, and the team had a couple of lovely images to work with. I chose Sunshine.

158 Square Card

I printed her onto Mixed Media card. Similar to watercolour card but not quite as thick. I then coloured her with the ‘extra colours’ from the Caran D’Ache Neocolor ii Watercolours range. They originally made a tin of 126 but discontinued them and now only make 84 as the largest tin. As I couldn’t get the tin I wanted the ‘extra’ 42 colours to complete my large tin. I finally tracked most of them down and used just those to make this card.

I also stamped MFT’s Modern Mosaic Background stamp onto the same cardstock and embossed it. I watercoloured it with the same colours I used in the image. I matted it and the image onto black cardstock. The birthday sentiment I die cut twice, the top layer from the Mixed Media card and coloured randomly with the same range of colours. I also went over the sentiment with a clear glitter pen, and matted it slightly off centre onto a black die cut.

The little circles are glitter enamel dots I got from China!
