Skipping Stones' Meet Our New Design Team Blog Hop

Hello - Thank for stopping by.  Let me introduce myself my name is Annie Collins. This is my first term with Skipping Stones Designs - Design Team. I am so honored that I was asked to be a part of the team. 

I have been a  paper crafter for over 20 years now. I have been a crafter in one form or another my entire life. I enjoy the creative process. I live in sunny Florida with my wonderful family. My loving and supportive husband and our 3 amazing children along with our sweet pets - both cats and dogs.

Now, I would like to share my project with you. I created this card using the beautiful I'd Pick You stamp set pictured below.

I first created a watercolor background using Distress Ink in the following colors Tumble Glass, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean & Blueprint sketch. I let it dry then sprinkled some Heidi Swapp in Gold & Citron set it a side to dry.

I then colored the image. Die cut the little label for the sentiment, I also cut the plum card stock to back my card front panel. Once the background was completely dry I pierced the card front panel and stitched with gold metal embroidery thread.

Then, I adhered the floral image to the card panel using foam adhesive for some height. finished with some more gold thread, sequins and enamel dots.

Thank you so much for coming by my blog. I hope you visit Skipping Stones Designs Store and purchase some wonderful stamps for your collection. 

I hope that you stop by again and visit me here.

Please be sure to stop by each of the Skipping Stones Designs - Design Team Members Blogs and leave a bit of love on their project. Thanks Enjoy your day!
