Hello! I was recently featured over at Lesia Zgharda as a Guest Designer. And today, I am presenting the same card here in my own blog. I am completely using their products here in this card, so check it out!!
I chose to use only watercolor card panel in this card, for the texture it provides, and also, since the ones I own are a bit off-white. For the inks, I chose distress inks, since they do not stamp perfectly and that was the look I was aiming for. I chose Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender and Tattered Rose for the flowers, with Scattered Straw for the centers and Mowed Lawn (2nd & 3rd generation stamping) and Shabby Shutters for the leaves. I simply stamped them, without misting them with water, and I only used water for the centers, where I didn’t want the stamping to be obvious.
I then added a few splatters using Victorian Velvet and Milled Lavender. Once I was happy, I fuzzy cut the top off, corresponding to the stamping.
Now for the background, I wanted something in gold. I painted some glitter from Deco Art Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint in gold, in a very messy way – I didn’t try for an even coat, or for even coverage. Once done, I left it aside to dry, and added the glitter to the center of the flowers, to make them sparkle!
Finally, once everything was dry, I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo black. I then adhered the glittery background on the card base, using double sided tape, and then added the flowery panel using foam. I embellished it a mix of pink and pearl-colored(?) pearls. And that’s my finished card!
