Thinking of You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I placed the Fretwork Mask over a piece of Coconut White Card which was 5 3/4" square so the mask fitted exactly. I inked through the mask with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I then stamped around the edges using the lovely scroll stamp from the Creative Expressions Artsy Floral Stamp set using Dusty Concord.

I stamped the large image from the Artsy Floral Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Magenta Blaze Aurora Embossing Powder from the Brights Set. I tore around the edges and inked around them with Dusty Concord. I stamped 2 of the coordinating flowers from the Creative Expressions Whimsical Floral Stamp Set again using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Magenta Blaze Aurora Powder. I cut them out with scissors and then inked them with Dusty Concord. I placed them over the top of the flowers on the larger image using 3D foam pads.

I stamped the sentiment from the Artsy Floral Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Magenta Blaze Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  16. Hi Julia, Like the concept of this card and the colour but sorry, not the flowers. I find them too dominant and heavy. Regards Jackie D

  17. Hi Julia I really like this card and the colours are great, I think the background is a bit too busy though and maybe needs a smaller pattern but other than that its the flowers and torn edges I've never been brave enough to do that yet! Will def be giving it.a go. Love Lesley x
