Gold Prayers

Hi friends - welcome back for another fun sketch at Splitcoaststampers - the sketch will be live tomorrow morning OR you can catch a peek down below.

Super CAS; I used the gorgeous flower from Hero Arts Monthly Kit April 2016; sorry, it's sold out now but you can make this same card with ANY floral image you have! Here's a sample of some of the cards debuted with the kit.

I took the easy route and did some water coloring, adding some color with distress markers directly to the paper; the softer 'highlight' areas were done with a white water color pencil. I used Hero Arts Prayer Stamp and Cut for the sentiment and die cut; the 'prayers' was cut multiple times from black card stock and one time from MFT gold card stock. I added a few clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish it off.

I added some glue in various places on the edges of the water color paper and once dry adhered Ranger gold foil; I also added some gold washi tape on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week!
