Hello BeYOUtiful Ladies out there...

Wish you all a Happy Women's Day!!!!

I'm so excited to be part of this Women's Day Blog hop along with my teammies and wonderful Guest Designers . We are so thankful to all our main sponsors & surprise sponsors ( Crafter's Tree & Rainbow Craftykary). This event wouldn't be successful without their kind support. . Check our wonderful Sponsors here.


Let me show you what I created for this special hop...

To make this card, I got inspired by the fact that "Beauty begins the moment YOU decides to be Yourself". So true.. Isn't it ?? I don't think that this quotes needs explanation..🙂;.. Right...

I started with hand drawing this image on watercolor paper which I die cut out using STAMPlorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. Then, I sprayed it with water immediately to smudge the ink a bit to represent that we (women) are not perfect , we have flaws too but even then we all are beautiful in our own way...

I ink smooshed the background with rainbow colored distress inks to show how diverse we (women) are from each other.

Finally I arranged the Be YOU tiful sentiment around the image along with some clear sequence to complete it. I have used STAMPlorations - Beautiful Word Die and Simon Says Stamp - YOU dies for the sentiment.

I hope you like how i interpreted my card for this wonderful day.. Once again girls Happy women's day and "BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL".
