It seems a very long time since I made a card just for the fun of it but today finally, that is what I did. Woo hoo, loved it.
I’m entering a challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique HERE . This is the “mood board” which was the inspiration –
And here is my version –
I used watercolour paper for the focal panel because I wanted to use Distress Inks and ZIG markers. I masked of a rectangle in the lower half of the panel and blended 3 bluish distress inks – Peacock feathers, Tumbled glass and Salty ocean. I then placed a stencil over the panel and blended Broken china through the stencil. Next a few drops of water which were blotted up added to the watery look.
I stamped out the images from the Altenew set “Peony Scrolls” using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Nuvo embossing powder “Glitter Noir”. Very pretty and sparkly. I coloured the images with Zig pens. The flowers I used “Bright Yellow” and “Yellow” and a water pen, so easy compared to some other colouring methods. I did the same with the leaves using “Pale Green” and “Cobalt Blue”. Once they were die-cut I glued them to the panel leaving a flower and leaf which I then attached using foam tape. The leaves then had some clear “Wink of Stella” brushed on. The flowers were quite bright enough without more glitter 😆
Finally I matted the focal panel with blue and black card and then adhered it onto a white card base. I wish you could see how sparkly it is in real life. I took the card outside to try to catch the glitter but you really still can’t see it clearly.
Here is the inside of the card.
I enjoyed myself today and feel a crafting splurge coming on 🙂
Bye for now,
