Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
While I was very inspired by Tracey's card (shown at the bottom), the full idea took a few days to come to me. I wasn't sure what image I wanted to use nor did I know what kind of card I wanted to create.
Once I knew what I was looking for, all that was left was choosing the colours. The versatility of design is great, I can easily swap in a Mother's Day or Sympathy Greeting and still have a very elegant piece.
To create today's card, I began by stamping the image in Versa Mark, a clear sticky ink, and heat embossing it with clear embossing powder, on 140lb coldpress watercolour paper.
I then used Tim Holtz Distress inks to watercolour the image. The colours I used were: Tattered Rose, Picked Raspberry, Bundled Sage, Forest Moss, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso, Wild Honey and Tumbled Glass.
I stamped the greeting using archival black ink and mounted the panel on a standard A2 size card base.
I thought it needed just a touch more so I added the shimmering clear sequins with Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
