Smitten Mittens For Inspire. Create. Challenges. A Second Card For Challenge #002

Hi there,
Following on from my post on Wednesday where I shared my make using the new sketch challenge that's currently running over at Inspire. Create. Challenges I wanted to share the second (of three) cards I made using the sketch! This card follows the sketch a little more loosely but you can still see the general shapes, with a diagonal background and a front panel (mittens) over the top, take a look....
OK, so to make this card:
 Create a watercoloured ombre effect on watercolour paper using ink pads and a square paintbrush. Paint a loose wash using Soft Sky blending into Pool Party then Marina Mist and finally Night Of Navy onto (already damp) paper. Heat set for speed then trim the sides to 10.5cm across and lastly cut at an angle.
Lay the top section of watercolour paper over a white card base (without sticking), stamp the sentiment in Navy to the left then again in Marina Mist either side until the diagonal gap is filled. Adhere the paper under it and trim away excess.
I used a new mini dimensional to pop up a metal rimmed pearl to make a 'hanger' for the mittens.
Finally the die cut and layered mittens (with Champagne Foil backing, so pretty!) were hung using tinsel trim...
Well, I do hope you will join in with this challenge?! and for more ideas please got to the Inspire. Create blog to see what the other DT members have made too!
Back tomorrow with a Halloween project and a blog hop so tons more inspiration! Hope to see you then :-)
