{Spotlight Project} Deepti Creates a Clean and Elegant Card

Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I am showcasing how to make a clean and elegant card with stamps and stencil. Here's a look at the finished card:

I started out with a white card base and sponged it partially with the stencil. I then splattered some Pumice stone distress ink.

Then I took a water color panel, stamped the daisy in Distress inks (Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry), and water colored these with same colors. I fussy cut them but I decided to use just one of the daisies on my card.

On the card base, I stamped the leaves. I also stamped and fussy cut an extra leaf. I added a panel of patterned paper and laid it all together along with the sentiment to finish my card.

Here's the finished card once again :) 

That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy crafting!
