Stampin’ Up! Follow Your Dreams for the for the Happy Inking Thursday and Happy Stampers Combined Blog Hop

We’re joining forces with Sandi MacIver’s Happy Stampers for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop again this week!  I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Follow Your Dreams stamp set bundle to create my project.

Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:

And here are the colors:

My card also works for the Just Us Girls challenge #449.

I started by wetting a panel of Watercolor Paper with just water and an Aqua Painter.  Then I did a watercolor wash with Bermuda Bay ink and an Aqua Painter over the panel.  I let it dry completely and then inked the image from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink, stamped it on scrap paper twice and then stamped it randomly over the watercolored panel.

I adhered the watercolored panel to a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered the layered panel to a Bermuda Bay card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the dream catcher image form the Follow Your Dreams stamp set in Petal Pink ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut it out with the coordinating Chase Your Dreams Framelits die.  I cut a panel of Petal Pink card stock with another die from the Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies and then adhered them together with Multipurpose Glue and then to the card front with Glue Dots.

I stamped the feather image from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set in Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss and Petal Pink inks and the flowers in Basic Gray ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I used the Light Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers to add a little color to the flowers and then cut the images out with the coordinating Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies.  I adhered the flowers and feathers to the dream catcher with Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added two of the die cut feathers with Glue Dots and then a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl to finish the card front.

I inked the dream catcher image in Bermuda Bay ink and it stamped on scrap paper once before stamping in on a Whisper White panel.  I added some of the die cut feathers with Glue Dots to finish the inside of the card.
