And I thought the shaped Christmas card challenge was tough, well this one really had me stumped for ages! But I eventually came up with this card:
I followed the instructions from HLS to make some faux mother of pearl card and then stamped on top of it. When it was dry I then sponged over with the same pink ink as I had used for the stamping.
I hand cut both the flower and leaves and added them on top of a strip of patterned paper and washi tape. A simple sentiment seemed appropriate to keep this card nice and CAS.
A bit more of a close up trying to showcase the mother of pearl effect.
Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms II, sentiment from A Gift For You
Inks: SU, strawberry slush, wild wasabi; Memento, tuxedo black
Paper: Lawn Fawn, Beachside 6x6 pad
Other: Liquid Pearls, white opal; Washi from my stash
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I really appreciate your time. And keep crafting!
So pretty, Jane ... and so deliciously CAS ... the shimmer on the bloom and leaves is just lovely! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Happy Little Stampers! Anita :)ReplyDelete
