I made this sweet card today. I started with a yellow and white floral piece of patterned paper and used watercolour paints on it.
I've coloured in a floral die-cut using green ink and textas. I've added a fun centre to the largest flower.
I have a scalloped sticker across the top and the sentiment is a chipboard piece.
I've entered this in CC72 challenge at Soul Scrappers.
I have 3 marker pens, total. So, I used them. I went to buy Jac paper at Spotlight, but they had run out. They had a similar product X-Press so I bought that. I don't think it is as thick as it seemed a little bit flimsy to me.
I cut a piece of it and then using my CM cutting system cut a diamond shape out of the middle of it.
I did this before applying the glitter. The application of the glitter was a bit messy, not as neat and tidy as Jennifer's. That's the main reason I don't work with glitter often. I'm a fairly neat crafter. I do like the effect though.
I decided to make two cards. One with the negative and one with the positive piece. Therefore, I cut some pink cardstock so I could the inlaying part with each card.
For this card I used the large glitter part with the smaller cardstock diamond. I added a large pink flower with a silver leaf, a Girl's Paperie die-cut and the sentiment sticker. These last two are raised on foam.
For this card I coloured the glitter diamond using my 3 markers and Jennifer's technique. I quite liked the effect. I used complementary paper flower colours and a sentiment sticker.
Here are the two together.
What do you think?
I gave one of the cards to one of my closest friends and she just loved it.
A new challenge is on at Archiscraps. Here is my layout. Extra criteria: JUNE-Use a book page or library pocket . I have added both a book page (from a mini book) and a library pocket. You only need to choose one of course.
Trinity College Dublin. Construction of the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland, began over 420 years ago. This photograph truly captures the immense beauty of the historic library. Julene, who runs Archiscraps is a Librarian and has been there. I'd love to go. I'm an avid reader, have been since I was a child. I've been in a book club now for 16 years. One of the ladies in the pic above has now joined it.
