Dreamcatchers are very popular these days and this stamp image does not disappoint. First I stamped the image in Aquamarine blue and set aside to dry. Once dry I watercolor painted the image with teal and light yellow as shown, then set aside to dry again.

Then I put together the card base from lighter peach color with light blue panel as shown in photo. Then I added another center panel in darker peach color and machine stitched the top and bottom for texture. Then I layered on the fab new glitter chevron tag. Two more kraft feather tags were stitched down the middle and then added on top of each other with a 3D foam dot. Then I adhered the xoxo sticker at the bottom of chevron tag and finally added back on the dreamcatcher image after I fussy cut it from the white cardstock. For a finishing touch I added the wood x to the center of the dreamcatcher, just to add some dimension.

Just like that you have a summer sun-kissed dreamcatcher card! What is your favorite summer color combo? I would love to hear what is your current favorite, share in comments below.
