Bouquet of Good Wishes
Thursday, October 25, 2012
Do you ever just fight and fight with a card and finally say...ok...that's it...you win??? LOL! This one got the better of me and I'm still not entirely thrilled but it is what it is.
The card base is a standard 4.25" x 5.5". Next comes a layer of black card stock topped by a piece of Pretty in Pink that's been dry embossed. A couple of simple squares made with my nesties are next; one in Regal Rose and one in Basic Black.
The focal image has been stamped on a die cut and then colored with Copics. I sponged it while it was in the die and then added a wee bit of color on the edges too. The flowers have been blinged up with a clear Spica pen and then I added the pearls to the centers of three of the flowers and also throughout the card.
Here's what I used:
Paper: Gina K. Luxury heavy weight card stock, SU! Pretty in Pink, SU! Regal Rose and SU! Basic Black
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and SU! Pink Pirouette
Stamps: Hero Arts Bouquet of Good Wishes and Lockhart Stamp Co.
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, square and postage nesties, Sizzix Flourish embossing folder (from the Textured Impressions embossing folder 2 pack - Snowflake & Flourish set), sponges, misc. pearls, clear Spica pen, Copics: flowers - R81, R83, R85, greens - G20, G24, basket - E41, E43 and shadows - W3
Thanks for joining me today! Hope your day is amazing!
