As we have been showered with much needed rain here in Northern California, all I feel is joy and gratitude. We have a long way to go, but every little bit helps. I thought I would put my feelings into a card.
The Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP is so much fun to work with. It was actually my inspiration. I knew it had a raindrop pattern and the project just went from there. I sponged with a dauber in silver encore ink all over in tiny swirls to give a cloudy gray look. Turned out fantastic I must say.
The flowers were punched with the pansy punch hovering over the large dots in the silver fancy foil designer velum, using the dots as the flower center. Nice idea, right? I used a bone folder to curl the petals of the velum and decided I needed more flowers. Basic gray became the flower background color and I punched another six of those. I distressed those with a large stylus to give them dimension and lift. Layered with dimensionals and glue dots, the side border came together.
A single stamp from the Your Presents set put the focus just right. It was framed with a smokey slate oval and both were sponged with more silver ink. The “i” was dotted with a metal rimmed pearl and a tiny ribbon was wrapped around. Add one more awesome card to the mix. A very rewarding project to make and enjoy.
Have a creative day!
