Hello! It's bee quite a while since my last post, and I've missed my blog sooooo much :) I miss that contact with the stamping community. Last weekend was just too busy. This weekend, busy too...but I did find time to make one card for 2 challenges.
The Play Date Cafe - PDCC 99 is a color challenge. I loooove these colors together!
The Paper Players Challenge #64 is a theme challenge.
I have to tell you. I'm not really liking my card. I've had this idea in my head for several days. I could just picture how pretty it would be. On paper though (actually card stock), not so much :(
But, I'll post it anyway. I think.
So. I used PTI's stamper's select white cardstock for my one layer card. I embossed it with SU's textured impressions flower garden embossing folder. I love this image! Then I took my wisteria wonder marker and used the side of the larger end, to run along all of the raised areas of the image. [Yes, I know it appears gray in the photo, but it really isn't.] After the ink was dry, I used a jelly roll stardust clear pen on the centers of the flowers. I don't think you can see that detail in my photo, but it sparkles IRL.
Now, it's at this point that I lost my love for this card. The sentiment that I selected looks too....well...wimpy or fragile, compared to the bolder lines of the floral image. Ah well. I couldn't find a way to cover it. So. It stays.
I finished the card with a piece of knotted pale yellow ribbon (from Michael's) and a few flat-back pearls (also from Michael's).
If you've read my entire post....I applaud you! Thank you for putting up with my whining :)
I hoping for better results with my next card!
