This card was made for a local (New Zealand) swap group, where the challenge was to make your own background. I can share it now as I know it has arrived at its destination.
I started with a background I had already made some months previously, and then botched. It had been sprayed with Lindy's Hydrangea Blue and Tattered Angels Chalkboard grape, (that I can remember, there are some other sprays there I cannot recall!)) and then had some gold embossing added.
I removed the area that I had initially botched, added a blue stitched die cut to frame the sunflower that I placed on the purple layer of the card.
The sunflower is a digi, but I cannot find where from. If anybody recognises it, please let me know so I can acknowledge the artist. It was coloured with Polychromos and then had WoS added, not that it is showing in the photos.
I find it difficult to add a greeting on a swap card, so I chose to use this die cut in gold to tie in with the gold embossing. The die is one I was given out of it's wrapper, so I do not know the brand. I use washi tape to line the letters up, and then remove it when all is adhered.
