soft and lovely (CPT, I am Doe, Jay Gee's Nook)

Another quick post to show you a card I made based on the sketch/image over at I am Doe.  Couldn't get this out of my mind.  So many elements I love.  The softness, the typography, the squares and washi.

I used the colors from the color challenge at Creative Paper Trade cuz this photo is just so lovely.  And I used a bit of my scraps from this card I made using a digi notecard from CPT.

And the inspiration board from JayGee's Nook (those pastel "nail polish" dots) has stuck in my head since I first saw it.

Here's my card.  One layer and lovely.

Know how I achieved that soft and lovely look?  Stamping off before stamping the images on the card.  And then I gave the entire card a light layer of white acrylic paint.  Ta da.  Applied the circle and washi over that.

I'm parking this over at Simon Says Stamp's blog because I'm in love with this little stamp set from American Crafts.

Thanks for looking.

Paper: card base Papermania, digi paper Creative Paper Trade
Stamps: American Crafts, triple square and bracket sentiment Hero ARts
