This is my second post today so be sure and scroll down and catch the first card! What can I say? It's been a fun crafting day!
When I saw this BEAUTIFUL picture this week on the SPARKS Challenge blog, I just HAD to play along. I wasn't quite sure if I could capture the essence of the flowers because I only have one set of Paper Smooches stamps that have flowers. (I am going to remedy that for sure!)
I wanted to create the soft look of the flowers and using the white gel pen helped with that. I decided to use a "sand" colored chalk ink for the leaves to keep with the color scheme. The sentiment and the flower centers are done in Delacata Gold Ink. I love this ink and how it is so shiny without needing to emboss it. I did, however, use gold embossing powder on a small white strip of card stock to give weightier attention to the gold vase in the picture. I had to emboss it a couple of times to get the strong look I was going for.
