This card was such a drama queen! Honestly, I nearly called off card class because I got so frustrated getting this to come out like I wanted it, too. Ironically, it is darn close to how I envisioned. The papers, stamps and I just went round the world and back to get to this place.
- The medallion gets its color from the method similar to "Black Magic" which Splitcoaststampers did a tutorial on last month. Rather than coloring with markers, I used pastels. First, stamp an image in white craft (pigment) ink on a dark background and then heat set but not emboss. I then went over parts of it with two colors of pastels. Just a little goes a long way.
- To get color from the pattern paper without the pattern being overwhelming, I layered two pieces of the same paper with a little punched border in between.
- This is a tri-fold card with the flower grommet holding the fold together.
It was really quite simple once I tried on lots of colors and arrangements.
Thanks for visiting today. Hope you have a wonderful 'season change' weekend wherever you are.
