I used digi version DIGI795 from Crafting is Exercise 795 stamp set. I re sized it to fit my card front and printed it out. Image is colored with Promarkers. It's cut out with scissors a little slanted and I also left a narrow white border around the image contours.
I went a bit messy with the background. Until the very end I was sure I'll throw this piece away. I didn't like it at all.
I took a piece a watercolor cardstock and dry embossed it with the embossing folder. I planned to tap all the raised parts with Versamark ink so only the raised parts will get inked. I covered everything with Wisteria Embossing Powder, tap off the excess and ... I saw that my plan failed. The parts I wanted to be covered wasn't covered well and some powder was in place I didn't want it. I still kept going and heated the powder with an heat tool. Then I sprinkled Ultramarine Blue Color Burst all over and colored the background with water brush. I didn't like the outcome. But after I placed all other pieced on top of it I started to like what I saw. Wohoo!
For corner embellishments I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to cardstock and die cutted the shape with Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish Two die. Then protective sheet of the tape was removed I covered sticky side with Hyacinth Velvet Glitter.
Sentiment is also from the same stamp set as the image. It is die cutted with a die from Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One set. I draw a frame with Sakura Glue Pen and covered it with Rose Gold Velvet Glitter.
Matting layers are made as I usually make the: Edges are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape, top layer is adhered to the center and rest of the tape is covered with glitter - Rose Gold Velvet Glitter is used on this card.
To add something more I used White and Wisteria Purple Nuvo Crystal Drops to make little pearls all over the card. The heart on sentiment panel is also made with the same thing.
The next stop on our blog hop is Anne. She is going to amaze you. Let's the hop begin!
