Hi Everyone!!! Have you recovered from chocolate overload yet? Today's card was a great challenge for me. I finally broke out the clear cardstock! I think next time I won't use glitter and clear cardstock on the same project. Can we talk about trying to photograph CLEAR with GLITTER?
Charmaine is kicking off a NEW challenge on the Verve Forum! It's the Get Your Diva On Challenge! This time it is a photo inspiration. I was drawn to the circles, crystal, and silver place setting. I decided to use clear cardstock for my crystal and silver embossing. The pink butterfly is my nod to the many pinks in the photo.
The sentiment is stamped on vellum with brings me to another challenge. PTI Make It Mondays. This week the technique is stamping on vellum. My vellum has stripes which made hiding more adhesive easy. The inside panel is PTI Smokey Shadow. I stamped the Mr. & Mrs. with versamark.
The Crate Paper blog had this tutorial on paper flowers that I used to create something similiar. The silver chunky glitter was fun to play with and I'm sure I'm wearing plenty. I chose to die cut a piece of clear cardstock for the base of the flower. The embossing gave me the perfect places to hide adhesive.I also die cut a clear butterfly to give more depth to the pink butterfly.
Thanks for stopping by today!! We are enjoying 70 degree weather here which just begs for me to be outside. We planted our onions on Sunday and will probably plant potatoes by Friday. ~Rhonda
