PE: The Card Concept Winner!! 😀
Made this card late last evening. This is one of the cards that came out better than I thought… and totally love the monochrome –
I first cut out a card panel using a die from Mama Elephant So Fancy. I then stamped My Favorite Things Lacy Background using Antique Linen distress ink, after misting it with a little water. I then stamped the flowers from Simon Says Stamp Summer Garden using Hero Arts Cup O’Joe, Paper Trey Ink Classic Kraft and Hero Arts Soft Granite inks. I also stamped one each of the flowers and a few leaves on a scrap piece of card stock and die cut them using the co-ordinating dies.
After mounting the flowers, I came to the sentiment – both the stamp and the die are from the Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint 3 stamp and die combination. For the die cut, I swiped Hero Arts Cup O’Joe on a scrap piece of card stock and then die cut it. For mounting it, I first thought of using black foam, but decided against it – I thought it would disturb the ‘sepia’ harmony, and instead I went for stacking die cut pieces from my watercolor paper, which is off white. The second, smaller sentiment is stamped using Hero Arts Cup O’Joe too.
Finally adhered a few copper sequins as embellishment. And that’s my card. Submitting it to the following challenges – Just Add Ink #296: Just Add Nature, Fusion Challenge: Woodgrain Neautral and The Card Concept #47: Floral Elegance –
By the way, I also made another card using the same stamp for a friend’s birthday. This card is inspired by this card by the awesome Nina Marie Trapini. I used Hero Arts Its Your Day for the sentiment. I used white pigment paint from Camel drawing inks and used Deco Art Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint in silver to color the flowers’ center –
And of course, the handmade envelope too. I used Memento Tuxedo Black for stamping and Deco Art Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint in gold to color the flowers’ center –
