Hello my friends! We have had three seasons in one week - it started with winter, then came autumn, followed by few hours of spring and it's back to autumn now. It's too early for Geraniums to bloom outside but they look really nice indoor and on my card :)
On my today's card I used beautiful Geraniums Stamp Set. Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and it's colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I wanted to try a bit different easel stopper then I usually make. I saw it somewhere online long time ago. The easel stands behind the flowers and the flower trail will continue to the card front.
After the flowers was colored I took a die from Label One set and traced it around the flowers and fussy cut it out. I added Dimensional Glue to the flower center and covered it with Evening Glow glitter. Matting layer for the main image is die-cut with Decorative Label One die out of Sticker Paper. I removed the protective sheet and covered it with Fiery Fushia and Sugar Plum glitters.
Flowers are cut out with Rose Creation die and inked with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I shaped them with round stylus on a foam mat. Dots of SNS Dimensional Glue was added to the flower center and covered it with Evening Glow glitter. I also added Dimensional Glue to the petals and covered it with Fiery Fushia glitter.
Rest of the matting layers are also covered with Fiery Fushia and Sugar Plum glitters but instead of Sticker Paper I used 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape.
I changed the pattern paper with some stamping. Crackle Background Stamp is perfect to add interest to the pattern paper. Sentiment is stamped with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
