The challenge for this month is:
So, without further ado, I will explain my process and the techniques I have used and list the supplies at the end.
First, I stamped a flower and leaves in Versamark on to white card-stock. Then I coloured them by sponging ink in two colours for each die-cut, two greens for the leaves and a yellow and orange for the flower. Next, I cut them out with the matching dies.
Then I took a piece of coordinating card-stock and stamped a floral background on it with Versamark and heat embossed with gold pearl embossing powder and cut a strip for the left hand side of my card base, which I adhered with tape runner.
Then I took a panel of white card-stock and dry embossed with my favourite embossing plate for texture. I then stamped the sentiment in the same gold pearl embossing powder and adhered the panel to the front of the base card with craft foam for dimension.
Finally, I arranged the flower and leaves on to the card front - some the leaves were adhered flat and the flower with foam tape - again for dimension. The very last touch was my home made dew drops, which have been referred to as my 'signature' touch.
So, techniques used were, stamping (main images, side panel & sentiment), die cuts (flower & leaves), sponging (flower & leaves) heat embossing (main images & side panel texture) and dry embossing (texture on front panel).
Here is the card.
