Today I'd like to share this card using a HUGE image:

When I picked this stamp (Penny Black 40-429 Fab Friend) I knew it was totally different from the style that I usually tend to use but I think leaving your comfort zones in the best way to learn, grown and stretch your creativity. So I picked this super large image with two precious ladies :)
I thought it would be perfect for watercoloring, SO I pulled out my Schmincke watercolors (I really need practice!) and took my time to color. It was like meditation and I enjoyed it a lot!
I didn't wat to add a stamped sentiment that would interfere with the image, so I pulled out my hello die (Penny Black 51-104 Hello), cut it from the colored panel and carefull adhered it with some foam tape, to make it show up.
Everything else is pretty obvious :)
The card felt kind of unbalanced at first. I was colored nicely, has some sequins, an interesting layout, but it just felt incomplete. I then adhered that small panner from some patterned paper in a matching color and this little pice of paper really had a big impact. It pulled everything together and balanced the card. Sometimes it's worth to just add a super small element!
Hope you like the card - I think it turned out pretty cool, even if this is not my go-to-style :)
