sending some sunshine (DIY embellies)

What do you get when you mix TP and a rubber stamp?  A DIY embellie, of course.

I'm still playing in the challenges over at Moxie Fab - they are so darn practical.  I'm lovin it.
I made a gob of these TP embellies a couple months ago following this tutorial.  Made this card.  Decided to make another one into a card for the DIY Embellishment Challenge

I think this is a great technique for artistic cards.  The subtle coloring was achieved adding a bit of watercolor as I was layering the wet TP while making it.  I  handstitched around the edge after poking holes and did all distressing and stamping with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

Stamped some wildflowers along the bottom of the kraft CS.  Added ink to the edges and stamped and clear embossed the sentiment which I found appropriate for the embellie.  Added a couple strips of scrap PP before adhering the embellie with score tape, but my CAS soul thinks it might have been even better without the PP.  Oh well.  This is a get well card so maybe brighter is better.

Thanks for stopping by.

Paper: CS ?, PP K& Co and October Afternoon

I have never seen an embellishment made with TP before! Ha! It looks really good, too; who knew? I like your tie-in with the sentiment and the sun. :)
