This is a quick post this evening as I have been away and am trying to catch up on visiting and commenting :)
This card was made for a swap group that I am in, and the theme this month was to use a stencil as the main feature on the card front.
I laid a stencil from a now defunct company on the card, and sprayed with a Lindy's spray - purple and teal - the teal shows in the larger dots - I could not get a good photo of the shimmer.
The sentiment is from the Rosie's Studio set Arabesque. The small stamp I put directly on the background, repeat stamped it, and it smudged (despite being in the Misti) so then I stamped it on a white snippet and ran a black pen around it in a loose frame, and was more than happy with the result.
The stamp and die cut greeting was a greater challenge, and I ended up die cutting then stamping - even that was not 100% successful, and a calligraphy pen helped some of the oops!
The roses on the sentiment were coloured with a gold pen, and I layered the die cut over another white layer, then a purple layer, which I offset slightly to form a shadow.
The main panel was mounted over purple and then onto a gold coloured base
I finished the inside with some white card to balance the weight on the front,
and some gold washi tape.
