Clearly Besotted - Love Quotes II
Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far! A couple of days ago I watched a video by the super talented Therese Calvird from Lost In Paper when she made a wedding card with pale grey card-stock and made a tone on tone background by stamping a flower image all over with a grey ink. I loved the effect, and so, this card was inspired by that video. Do yourself a favour and pay Therese a visit, if you haven't already, she is one super talented card maker.
First, I took a panel of pale grey card-stock and stamped the largest flower from Clearly Besotted's 'Love Quotes II' stamp set (until now, un-inked) Then, I softly coloured them with a white pencil and put a shadow around them with a grey pencil.
Next, I took a strip of vellum and heat embossed the sentiment in white and stamped the smaller flower and leaves on another piece of the same vellum, and heat embossed that in white also. then I fussy cut the leaves and small flower out and adhered them just above the sentiment and added a bit of shimmer with a Gellyroll Stardust glitter pen to them.
Then I folded the vellum panel over the front of the grey panel and secured the vellum on the back with Scotch Tape and cut a small strip off each side of the panel to make it a tiny bit smaller than my card base, so that I would have a small margin of white on both sides and adhered it to the card base.
I finished it off with some sparkling sequins from SSS and a couple of drops here and there of Glossy Accents, sprinkled with a little iridescent micro-fine glitter (which is not very noticeable in the photos). Here is my card.
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
