SugarPea Designs Release Sweet Peeks Day 4

It's Day 4 of SugarPea Designs' Sweet Peeks Week - all of these products will be available on Friday night at 6 pm.



Today we have two new stamp sets - one is a beautiful mandala that will be so versatile and the other is a sentiment set that's all about YOU (with matching die, of course!)


This card was inspired by Debby Hughes' card here. I loved her colour choice and tried to mix my own watercolours (I know!) to match (I think mine ended up a bit softer, but still very pretty, if I do say so myself! lol!). 

I stamped the mandala 4 times on a 6x6 piece of watercolour cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I set to work with my Prima Confections. I cut the panel using Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles, offsetting the mandalas so that the clear space created a place for my sentiment. Then I cut the 'you' 3 times (2 in regular cardstock, 1 with watercolour cardstock that had been painted with some of the full strength purple) and stacked them up. 


Next, I felt like the mandala was calling out for for a rainbow treatment. This is so simple - I scribbled some Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on and then spritzed it a lot! (be sure to use watercolour cardstock for this method). I cut it out using the largest Zig Zag Stitched Circle die and popped it up over the edge on a square card (making sure that it will still fit into a standard-sized envelope!).  Here's a quick video:
