I am feeling SO lazy since a couple of days. I made this day before yesterday and since then I am sitting idle. No crafty business. I have been watching movies and eating popcorn. I did sit yesterday to make something then gave up again.
On to today’s card… it is based on the sketch over at Card Patterns. My main inspiration for this card is the “Metallic Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World” (now say that quick!).
This is the first time I have tried to make this type of flower, looks horrendous here LOL but not so much IRL. The gem in the middle is from a broken earring. I applied sienna coloured glitter on the edges of the petals but did not cover the entire edge, just a bit here and there. The pink panel (bottom) is embossed using candy cane stripes and the flower embossing is Flower Rings.
I have enhanced the embossed flowers by first inking them slightly with (dusty plum and velvet) colorbox pigment inks and then painted over it with WHITE pearl paint. I think it enhances the bland cardstock, I distressed it’s edges too but it’s not showing too much here. I used the pigment inks on the lower pink panel too, just to make the stripes pop.
I forgot to outline the card with a gold marker, just close your eyes and picture how it would have looked! LOL
