Work of Art meets Everything Eleanor

Have you ever tried to make something look effortless?! It's not as easy as it sounds, and that's exactly why Work of Art has become an instant favorite of mine. Watercoloring is such a wonderful look, but I've never been a watercolorist. Until now.

With this stamp set, you can make a background that anchors or adds color to just about anything else you want to put on the page. And what a great message to send those we love or wish to encourage: You are a fabulous work of art.

To replicate this card, you'll need Bermuda Bay, Hello Honey, and StazOn black inks (Hint: The small watercolor stamp is inked only once but stamped three times, from bottom to top). The swirl is from Everything Eleanor. A scrap of Bermuda Bay CS and the Elegant Butterfly punch add the third dimension, with a row of Basic Rhinestones for the body. Corners were rounded with the Project Life Corner Punch (p. 188). Pop up your "art piece" with dimensionals, and you're done! Another superspeedy layout for a card that fits so many occasions.


Note: We made this in a demonstrator group meeting, but I believe the original concept came from SU! demo Sandi MacIver.
