#950 – Sparsely colored Bergenias

PE: Top Three at AAA Birthday challenge!

AAA Birthday - Top 3

Hello and welcome! We have a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time I chose the Topping to be ‘Use an Embossing Folder‘.

And here’s what I created –

Sorry for the picture’s bad quality – its always cloudy here, and this is taken when the day was at its brightest!

Coming to the card – I started with embossing Hndmd Cotton watercolor paper using Altenew’s Beautiful Bergenia embossing folder. I then started coloring the raised areas with Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils, using mineral oil/baby oil and paper stump to blend the colors. (You can see a similar coloring attempt with a different Altenew embossing folder here, where I used Oil pastels instead).

Once done, I trimmed the panel and adhered it over an off-white cardstock, covering the top completely. For the sentiment, I stamped one from Altenew Beautiful Lady over the same cardstock, trimmed it to size and foam mounted it over the card. I then added a few translucent sequins from Ranganjali for embellishment.

And that’s my card!
