Be A Dreamer

This is another card featuring a piece of Cosmo Cricket Just Add Watercolor Paper.  I colored this one using Brusho watercolor crystals.  After it was dry it looked sort of "zen" to me.  I liked the gold accents on the paper plus there was a little gold watercolor in the color mix.  I went looking for gold accent pieces and thought of this new die I had just purchased which looked fantastic cut out of gold cardstock. 

I also used a product for the first time...  Stick-It.  These are ultra thin double sided adhesive sheets that you trim down and apply to the piece of cardstock that you will be using to die cut from.  It works awesomely and there are no stray "glue goobers" to deal with. Great product!

I always save every bit of the pieces I work with when making a card.  Often I use these "scraps" to make a matching inside.  Really- sometimes I have more creative fun with the inside than the outside ;)
