365 Cards - Day 166 ---- Card Recipe!
and this is just perfect for
Crafty Cardmakers 1st challenge - Blossoms
Oh! I love recipes as it tells you when to stop as I do suffer, sometimes, from the inability to observe the rule of 'Less is More'
The ingredients for this recipe are :-
4" x 7" card
Wet embossed sentiment
3 different patterned papers
Good card size to use for a change and I used just bog-standard green card for this....No Bazzill????....well this card was already cut to the stated size and was the starting point for the whole thing :) The stripey and spotty papers are misc. out of my stash, but the floral paper, of which I cut around the pattern, is Basic Grey LilyKate.
The 5 blossoms were all mounted one on top of the other to make 1 bloom, then I thought Ah!!... no brad can be used to hold it together, so just got to work with DST to stick each one and then used a good blob of glue and sprinkled glitter into the centre of the flower to give it a centre. The largest of the blooms is a Flourish Flower by Imaginisce.
I also drew around some of the swirls on the paper and some of the dotty pattern with a glue pen and sprinkled the glitter all over that. The glitter being Stampendous Ultra Fine.
I then stamped the Hero Arts sentiment in purple pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear emb. powder.
Another challenge completed, just wish I could go back and get some older ones done too, but that is expecting too much of my poor brain....lol!!
The scan does not show up the glitter or the shiny embossing unfortunately so you will just have to use your lovely imaginations.
Thank you for reading this far. xxx
