Back again…and this time with pattern papers (which, again, it has been lots of time since I used :)) and some embossing on top! 🙂
Since this is for the current ColourQ Challenge, I picked up colors which match the colors given in the challenge – I also tried picking up pattern paper with similar pattern on it, and hence all of them have dots on them 🙂 The papers all come from DCWV – Stack 8, Christmas & Winter, Fresh Floral Stack.
After cutting out a couple of pieces of random width from these pattern papers, I colored the sides with a bit of similar tinted distress inks – this makes the edges stand out a bit (learned this from Jennifer McGuire!) and then adhered them on top of a scrap piece of card stock (didn’t use thin paper since the pattern papers themselves were pretty thin) using double sided tape. I then cut a rounded panel from this using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics.
I then stamped the flowers, Silhouettes Flowers from Joy Crafts, and the sentiment, from Sizzix, using Versamark Watermark ink and heat embossed them in white using Zing white embossing powder. I then added a dashed line around the panel using Uniball Signo white gel pen. I then added some clear rhinestones and tied the thread around the panel before foam mounting it on the card panel.
This finished my card! I am submitting this to ColourQ Challenge #275.
Thanks for looking! 🙂
