Hello Pieces Punch!

Sorry I went AWOL for a couple days there! Sometimes life just gets in the way of all this stamping fun. Tomorrow is the birthday of a very special friend, and even though I didn't get it in the mail on time, I want to wish her a happy birthday!
For this card I combined the three challenges I missed while I was AWOL... to use watercolor paper, to use a verse stamp as the main image of the card, and to use this picture as inspiration. The verse stamp is one I found in the $1 bin at Michaels and just couldn't pass up. I just love it.

To begin, I stamped the verse on Stampin Up Watercolor Paper in Black Stazon ink. Then I used the Rose Red Watercolor Wonder crayon to add color around the circle and highlight the words Friend, Most, and Precious. Next I used baby oil and a stump to blend in the color. Then I used an aquapainter directly on the end of my Regal Rose watercolor crayon and went over the center part of the circle. Next I went over the three highlighted words with my Rose Red Stampin Write Marker and then went over the entire piece with my aqapainter. Then I trimmed it out, glued to Rose Red CS and trimmed again.

Next I punched out shapes with my Pieces punch in Rose Red and Basic Black and used a the Marvy Mega circle punch and a strip of Basic Black CS (with the corners punched with the Ticket Corner Punch) to emulate a larger version of the Designer Label Punch. I glued the pieces to Pretty in Pink cardstock and faux stitched around the edges of the punches with white gel pen. Next I dotted around all the pieces with my Sakura Pink Stardust gel pen. Then I stamped the dotted stamp from Delight in Life on the Pretty in Pink with Black Stazon. I highlighted randowm dots with Rose Red marker, stardust pen and the rest with Coffe Ice Stickles. Tied a bow (ribbon from Michael's) around the whole piece.

Next I took a 4.25 x 5.5" piece of Basic Black and used my ruler to draw a line on the back a quarter inch from the left, right and top. I used this line as a guide to punch my slit punch to make the scallop. Next I used my ticket corner punch on the top corners of my Pretty in Pink piece and slid under the Basic Black Scallop. I used my white gel pen to do some faux stitching, then topped each semi-circle with adhesive rhinestones I got from the $1 tree. Finally, I attached the big verse piece on thick pop dots and voila!
