Welcome - thanks for visiting again.
My lovely friend Linda sent me a R.A.K. some time ago, and in it was some wallpaper that was part of a sample, and I have used part of it for this card.
The texture in the pattern of the wallpaper was so lovely I did not really want to hide it, so designed the card to maximise it. I started by sponging the edges of the paper with pink ink.
The images are from a retired Layers of Color set by Nina Bracket, Dotted Dahlias. I coloured them with chalks and after sealing them, sprayed them with platinum coloured shimmer paint, some of which you can see in the above photograph. I cut the image with an oval die, and sponged just inside the edge with blue ink before I removed the die.
The ribbon was folded in half to get the depth of colour I wanted, and then tied in a simple knot with a wee strip passed through that. Quite an effective look, but it lies really flat for posting. The blue base of the card was also sponged with blue ink before assembling the whole.
The final touch was a rhinestone flourish and some others on the opposite corners.

May your day be blessed.
