Can't Help But

Smile...because the weekend is here!!


I finally had a play with the new Ken Oliver color bursts.  For this card I used them more in the vein of a watercolor technique to create a smoother vibrant look to the design.

The sentiment was created using the set from the new release called Smile.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder to create a resist technique for the watercolors. 


For the inside of the card, just the top and bottom edges of the watercolor paper were colored to coordinate with the front panel design.


The word die cut Smile (30012) was die cut twice to create a shadow effect.  The bottom "smile" was cut in black cardstock and the top layer was cut using the same colors as the rest of the design and then adhered to the black cardstock.

Thanks for visiting today, and I hope your weekend is creative and fantastic.




Love this card. So energizing! I smiled instantly.

Love love the water coloring! Beautiful card!

Your card is so creative, interesting and wonderful. The background reminds me of a U.S. map. TFS
