I remember the last time RIC had lots of inspiration photos – then, as now, my first confusion was to choose which photo would be the inspiration for my card…of course, followed by the confusion of how to make my card! 😉
This time, for the RIC: Oscars Red Carpet, I chose the inspiration photo provided by Aga –
But since I don’t own any sprays, I chose to use an old trick to get the effect… I mixed light pink and crimson acrylic paints and water to just the right color and thickness, and then used an old toothbrush to spray the color on the card base. I did the same with some gold acrylic paint, except this time, I didn’t mix any other paint to it and also used a lesser quantity. 🙂
I then picked up a few die cut pieces I had left over from previous projects – that’s where the scalloped border on top came from, and the feathers too. I colored the edges of the feather using Tattered Rose distress ink and colored the bottom half of them by swiping Memento Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad.
I then stapled the feathers on the scallop border, adhered the border on the card base directly and added a foam dot beneath each feather to adhere it to the card base. I also curved the edges of the feathers a bit for added dimension.
Thanks for looking! 🙂
