Today's card was supposed to be for the current Colour Me challenge that I have never tried for before and the colour was Crisp Cantaloupe, which I have, but . . . and this is where the "fail" comes in . . . it is supposed to be 'monochromatic', and what had I done? Added gold, that's what!!
Anywho, I thought I'd share it with you all anyway. This is my card.
I went for an ombre effect with the main focal image, which was made with my brand new, only received today, MFT stencil.
Then I got a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock and heat embossed it with iridescent embossing powder and an MFT diagonal striped background stamp. I mounted a strip of that down the left hand side of the card base, and then . . . went wrong from there. I heat embossed the sentiment - a CC Designs sentiment - with gold sparkle embossing powder (which you can't tell in these pictures) and added a few gold sequins.
I then cut the panel smaller than the card base and a little wonky to add interest and adhered it to the card base with foam tape for dimension.
As always, thanks for making my day and stopping by and for any comments that you might make. Have a lovely day! Hazel xx
