Hello. I have a couple of cards to share today:
I began by die-cutting the Altenew ‘Craft-a-Flower: Daisy’ out of Altenew gradient card stock and then gluing the layers together.
I looked for a background technique behind the flowers and was going to splatter, then ink through a stencil, but decided to gold emboss some splatters through a Tim Holtz stencil.
I find splatters sometimes disappear into certain card bases, and I wanted the gold to really shine. I managed to capture the shine on a couple of the photos.
The reason there are two cards? I die-cut four flowers and after adding three flowers and leaves to one card, I had some left over – so made another card.
The rectangle was added behind the one flower because that was just sitting there after ‘failing’ to make several cards yesterday – I like the effect it gives here.
The sentiment is from Indigo Blu and from a stamp set from their first magazine, and on one strip I laid down some sticky tape, added the same embossing powder, heat embossed and die cut it with a sentiment strip die from Heffy Doodle.
The left over gold strip was then glued to the second sentiment strip.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
