I was asked to fulfill a very tall order in making a special card. Trust me, when I was informed of the recipient, I scratched my entire creative brain to come up with a card worthy of giving to her. All I knew was that I was using:
1- something floral from Penny Black
2- purple and red to color the flowers
3- something with shimmer/sparkle
Here's the end product and I am totally pleased with this card :)
What made this card so special in the end:
- Ink smooshing for the win! I love this technique for backgrounds :) I used Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays in Luminous Lemon (no shimmer) and Bling-y Blonde (shimmer).
- The Izink pigment inks- they provide great coverage (colored over the yellow) and they have a beautiful shimmer.
- I created dimension by stamping and coloring a few extra blossoms and leaves to pop up with foam tape.
- The added touches of white gel pen to the blossoms and leaves, the splatters (of course I couldn't resist), and the text stamping in the background (added it at the end actually).
I can't wait to hear how it went over! Thanks for stopping by and looking in on this card :)
