You're a gem (Neat and Tangled release week)

Hi there!

It's Day 2 of this month's Neat and Tangled release week.  In case you missed yesterday's post:

Day 1: Together

Today, we're showing off a hand-lettered gem by Danielle called... You're A Gem.

You're a gem (Neat and Tangled release week)


I couldn't help but enlist the help of my little mouse friends (more on them tomorrow!) to hold up that gigantic gem.

I looked through my box of scrap patterned paper and found a sheet with frames all over it. I have no idea who made it, but I trimmed out one frame and used it to house my focal images.

You're a gem (Neat and Tangled release week)

I heat-embossed the gem image, did some quick watercoloring so that the color wouldn't look too opaque, and then added some sparkle to it with a wink of Stella glitter pen.

The sentiment was stamped onto the cloud paper, and then again onto the frame and lined up to appear seamless when you look at the card straight on.

I hope you like it! I really can't wait to show you more of these cute mice and the rest of that set tomorrow.
