be still...A ColourArte Tutorial 24

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! It's my turn to share a project along with a step by step tutorial on the ColourArte blog today. I would be delighted if you were to stop by and check out my project here: ColourArte blog.
Here's a sneak peek:

Please feel free to take a moment to visit the ColourArte blog and absorb all the amazing DT inspiration!

I also have some exciting news to share ~ today, I am sharing a project as a Guest Designer on the fabulous Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog:
This current challenge theme is all about: "Something to say..."- there are so many fabulous quotes and sayings now available for use on our projects. Whether you stamp it, print it, write it or die cut it, make your sentiment the main focus of attention on your vintage or shabby chic entries. 
While focusing on the challenge theme "Something to say", I was inspired to create a shabby mixed media card featuring a die cut sentiment ~ the powerful one word ~ believe. 
The world can be quite a chaotic place and it's so easy to get caught up in all the mayhem. Reminding a loved one or a complete stranger to believe may provide the small dose of hope and encouragement they need.
I started with plain watercolor paper which I transformed using a stencil, modeling paste, ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glaze: Sunburst and Silver Bells, stamps and embossing powder. I embellished with a beautiful chipboard heart from Gina's Designs which I covered with a crackle paste and an application of ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glaze: Silver Bells. I completed the card with a variety of Prima flowers and a Prima resin cherub:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Card Concept challenge:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with this week's MOJO Monday sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my sample for the "Something to say" challenge and I look forward to seeing what you create! Many thanks to Linda, Sue and the wildly creative DT for inviting me to share my creativity on the fabulous Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog today. I'm very honored and grateful for the wonderful opportunity. Please be sure to visit the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog (click HERE) to see all the beautiful DT samples!
Be Sweet ;)
