Avery Elle April Release Blog Hop

Good Morning!!


Today is the always FABULOUS, Avery Elle DT blog hop. 
Where we all get to inspire you with the wonderful new sets, 
and these new ones will NOT disappoint!!

Today my card showcases one of the new Dies sets, Custom Panels as well as the new Storybook set, designed by the amazing Heather Campbell.

Storybook Clear Stamps Avery Elle Custom Panels Custom Steel Die

I have been in awe of all of the gorgeous watercolour cards that have been popping up lately and finally decided to try it out for myself.


Now, I don't have any watercolour paints, 
but I do have a LOT of Distress Inks. 
I just smooshed a bunch of different blues down on my craft mat, 
spritzed it with water,
 then grabbed a paint brush and went to town.

I stamped the stars in versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.

I just love how it turned out.

Here's the blog hop order, just in case you didn't start at the beginning.
Start at Jamie and work your way down the list for some jaw-dropping inspiration!!



Enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
