Welcome to all my visitors -just a quick post this time as I post a card I have made for the Midnight Madness Challenge - I have taken some liberties with the sketch, but that is allowable as long as the basic sketch is recognizable.
I chose to work with stamps from Layers of Color, using the Nature Walk set, and chalks. My lovely neighbour who has dabbled in art over the years gave me all her artist quality chalks the other day, so my colour range is quite amazing - a huge step up from what I previously had to work with!!
I used pink for the base cardstock and wanting something subtle for the lower section as the dp is so quiet in its design, I put it through the cuttlebug in the leafy branch embossing folder, which was just what was needed.
I then cut the dp to size and ran the edges over a lavender ink pad. The flowers were stamped twice in the same lavender ink, once in the circle area that I wanted to use, and once again on some other card to cut out and mount over the original images, after colouring.
Despite the colour the camera had picked up, the flowers are actually a strong purple colour with a cyclamen accent. The layered flowers were mounted with a thin dimensional adhesive, and the leaves with double sided sellotape. The edge of the feature circle was rubbed over a red ink pad to give it definition, and the sentiment was stamped in the same ink. The whole was them assembled and the the pearls added to complete the card.
For now I am only linking this to the
