#874 – Just a Note

Hello! Its again been some time since I created a non-DT card. Being totally out of it is slowly becoming a norm and I wanted to break it desperately. Thankfully, this idea that appeared in my mind clicked!

I started with making watercolor panels of blue and brown using Brusho powders. I first used water mixed with perfect pearls and then used plain water to mist the panels, and dried them using my heat gun. With this I had 2 panels of brown, one a shade darker and 1 of blue. I then die cut the lighter of the brown panels and the blue panel using Altenew Doodled Lace die. I also cut out the flower and leaf pieces from the die cuts.

To make the background framed panel, I die cut the darker brown piece with my Memory Box Rectangle Basics, creating two pieces – the frame and the panel inside. I cut a few more pieces to adhere them only behind the frame, to raise it a little. I then positioned this on my card base, stamped the sentiment, from Altenew Beautiful Lady stamp set in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in copper.

I then adhered the frame-panel over the cream, rustic card base. I also adhered the flower and leaf pieces that I had cut out earlier – some raised with foam tape and some directly adhered. Finally, for embellishing, I used a few brown colored clear gemstones. To add a bit more sparkle, I went through the flowers and the frame with a glitter brush pen.

With this card, I am also joining the following challenges –

  1. Those colors are quite dark to be used on their own but you have balanced them with white and they look Stunning together !

  2. Always get excited when I see people use floral dies for our challenge. I think most people immediately think of their stamps for flowers, so this is a gorgeous change. Really like the colour combo, looks almost metallic, like an oxidised brass. The layout is fantastic too, I don’t put things in the top left-hand corner very often, this has encouraged me to give it a go because it looks so fresh and modern. Always wonderful to see you at The Flower Challenge!! xx

  3. Hmm, I thought I knew those flowers, but in a very different way! You did a whole new “treatment” to the Altenew Doodled Lace die, and it looks gorgeous!

    • Thank you Cris! Not an origow, though.. I had seen another card where it was cut down, don’t remember where. I just remembered it when I made this one!
