PE: CAS-ual Fridays Favorite!!
Hello! So I finally got out of series of ‘quickie’ cards and spent a little more time on the card this time. I took the inspiration from the Ellen Hutson Color Trend challenge and thought of trying out all the colors from the palette, if possible. The idea was to use the lighter color (i.e., yellow) on the flowers and the rest of the them to create the background.
I chose the Mondo Sakura florals from Ellen Hutson – it is a latest addition to my stash and I couldn’t wait to try it out! 🙂 A search for a suitable background led me to this Stiched Circles stamp from JustRite – a background stamp I had bought ages ago. And it was kinda fun mixing this old stamp with the new one! 🙂
I stamped the flowers first, then masked the image and stamped the background image, and heat embossed the whole panel using gold embossing powder. I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to color the whole panel. And then I die cut the piece using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die. Looking back, I should have left it as is, and covered the whole front of the card with the panel – that was my initial idea, and I think it would have looked better too. Anyways, I added the gold heat embossed sentiment from Winnie & Walter Sending You stamp set. Then I added a bunch of gold sequins in the flower centers.
With this card, I am joining the following challenges –
