Your Smile

Meet "Your Smile" 
I would have to say this is one of my favourite cards that I made for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges earlier this month. I sponged the colour on my cardstock and spritzed with water and did some drips with my paint brush. I added some flicks of paint using the same colours of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. With the assistance of MISTI , I die cut my flowers using 40lb vellum. and stamped the floral image then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. I added with matte glue and some foam dots arranging up the left side of my card. I added the hearts and my sentiment, which was also heat embossed using the gold embossing powder. And of course, my trademark sequins to finish. 
Thanks for having a look.

  1. Beautiful card Kia. LOVE that gorgeous sponged, spritzed and dripped background. Lots of gorgeous visual texture. And your vellum and gold heat embossed flowers are so delicate and pretty. Great card Kia! xx

  2. Pretty card, Kia. Like how you arranged the flowers and layered them.

  3. Kia, this is gorgeous! I love the vellum flowers, and the gold embossing is beautiful! What an amazing background that you've created. One day I want to try something like this. I'm glad to see I could drop water from a water brush. Thank you for that tip. Beautifully done, sweet friend, and I especially love the sentiment. It's true of you! Hugs! xoxo
