Bloom

Welcome

I dug into my NBUS tray for this card - and found the wonderful set from STAMPlorations called Hope Blooms.  


I started by spraying across the white cardstock with gold and really red perfect pearls.  This did not show up that well so I then stamped some butterflies in Spun Sugar DI, following the angle of the spray.


I stamped one of the images from the set in Espresso ink on a snippet, and coloured it lightly with prismacolor pencils, and then layered it on some pink glitter card.


I repeated that process with the word bloom.


Both panels were mounted using foam tape. Above you can see the butterflies and spray behind the floral panel.


Both the butterflies and the floral panel were then painted with clear WoS.


The final details were to sponge the edges of the card with the Spun Sugar DI, and add a birthday greeting and this bow to the inside.

Maxine, The pastel DI background is so pretty. The stamped and layered blooms are so natural looking. I like the bit of glitter that is showing and embossed sentiments are your signature. Thank you so much for joining our 219th challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Your creation is inspiring and very much appreciated. Blessings, Carole

Lovely background, and I'm glad you showed the closeup, cause I missed the butterfly design in the first glance. A beautiful background to showcase this very subtle shading on the pretty stamp. Adding the pink glitter mat really ties all this together for such a pretty card! TFS & have a good week. (TFS the bargello thoughts. I've been revisiting some videos..may give it another go. Lots of tedious taping though!) Hugs
