You Make Me Smile

The current Honey Bee Stamps Buzzworthy challenge is to create a card using one of their Honey Cuts dies as the focal point.  I love the Smile die, so this was a perfect challenge to show it off.

You Make Me Smile-created by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Honey Bee Stamps
I used distress inks and water to make a rainbow-like background panel on watercolor paper.  While the inks dried, I die cut the word from both black cardstock and craft foam. After layering the two pieces for dimension, I adhered them to the rainbow panel.  To complete the sentiment, I stamped the "you make me" from the coordinating Smile stamp set just above the word in black ink.  A narrow strip of black cardstock was adhered just beneath the text and accented with a trio of silver glitter enamel dots. The finished panel was adhered to a green card base, matching the middle color in the rainbow panel.

Materials Used:
Smile stamp set, Smile die (Honey Bee Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed, Festive Berries, Wilted Violet, Carved Pumpkin, and Twisted Citron distress inks (Ranger); Basic Black cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Sour Apple (cardstock My Favorite Things); silver glitter enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); craft foam
