Hello again and welcome back! Tonight I'm sharing a card made for the current Fusion sketch challenge, and the color challenge at The Paper Players to use Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz.
When I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to do a flower border. I picked various smaller stamps from the Blooming Bouquet stamp set to use. They were stamped and heat set on watercolor paper, watercolored with Distress inks in colors similar to the Stampin' Up colors in the challenge, then fussy cut. For the curvy line down the middle of the sketch, I used a pencil to hand draw the curve on a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock and cut it with scissors. Before adding the panel to the white card stock base, the sentiment was heat set with gold embossing powder, then the flowers and leaves were added with glue dots. After everything was adhered, I added some (okay, a lot) gold splatters and clear sequins. I always think of metallics as a kind of neutral, and like to add them even if it's just some kind of embellishment. But in this case I thought the splatters added some nice interest.
That's it for my card. Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated! I've added links above to both challenges, so be sure to head over there and enjoy all the beautiful inspiration!
