Prayers & Thanks

Hi friends - hope you are having a good weekend!

I started these focal panels early in the week, just random watercolors thrown onto some watercolor paper. Later in the week, I placed an order with Concord and 9th...heavens to besty, how does this happen? Their Bundle of Kindness pack comes with the Happy Hues card pack...YES, those card bases are straight from the card pack; crazy how the colors match huh?

I die cut the words "Prayers" from Hero Arts and "Thanks" from MFT Stamps from the main panel. I then cut Prayers from black card stock and Thanks from aqua mist multiple times for fun dimemsion. I covered the main piece with 2 coats of clear wink of stella then a thick coat of glossy accents. Added some black hearts, coated in black wink of stella and more glossy accents. When the Happy Hues card pack arrived, I decided to make these super CAS cards; I think they look fabulous on that watercolor background.

Thanks for stopping by; take care!
