Taylored Expressions March Release Day! - Carried Away 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Thursday to you! 8-) Haven't you just Loved ALL the AWESOME Sneak Peeks the last few days!! I know I sure have!! Talk about LOTS of Amazing New Goodies!! Whoo Hoo! ;-) Well I've got some Really Great News!... All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the New Department. Yay!! Time to do some Shopping! Whoo Hoo! ;-) 

And today I am Super Thrilled to be sharing a March New Release Project with you all featuring TE's Brand New Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo along with TE's Brand New Metallic Neutrals CS's as well to create a simply Darling Card that can be used for a Wedding or even an Engagement  Congratulations card too!... 8-)
I thought I'd try my hand at a watercolor BG since I've been so inspired by all the dreamy watercolor cards and projects I've been seeing so much of lately, I just had to jump on the band wagon, lol ... 8-) I really Love how this card turned out!!  And even though, I'm not sure who I will be sending it to, I am just thrilled to have it on hand just in case we hear of some upcoming happy news from friends or family... 8-)
For my Focal BG, I started off by doing a little acrylic block watercoloring with a few Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Aged Mahogany & Victorian Velvet ...;-) It's pretty simple, you just ink up your acrylic block with various distress ink pads, spritz with a bit of water and stamp or smear onto your Water Color CS. Then after it was completely dry, I just stamped my Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo image with Versamark ink and embossed with Gold EP. My Mats & BG layers were created with TE's New Metallic Neutrals CS and Watercolor CS. And to finish it all up I just adhered my Fun Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo Heart Balloon Die cuts and Stamped my Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo sentiment directly onto my Card BG with Clorox Frost White ink that I embossed with White EP... 8-)
