After spending most of today making DT cards in between doing loads of laundry, I finally got some time this evening to make a card for a couple of challenges. This card is for the current Share Joy Challenge, where I've sort of stuck to the sketch as well as produced a CAS card. I was also inspired by Marjan's card at Time Out and used similar colors as well as keeping the floral theme (although my purple ink is a bit darker). For my twist, I added a black card base to make everything pop and some emboss resist.
I started my card by stamping the flowers in SSS dye inks then clear-embossing. To keep the ink wet long enough for the embossing powder to stick, I first inked up in Versamark then in the colored ink. I kept my images to the bottom right of the panel, matching the sketch at Share Joy. Once that was complete, I inked up part of the Tiny Alphabet background stamp with Versamark ink and stamped it, also in the bottom right hand portion of the panel. I then clear-embossed it before very lightly sponging on some Hickory Smoke ink.
I die-cut the panel with the largest of the Pierced Rectangle Stax and then white embossed the sentiment. Before adhering the panel to the card base, I clear embossed the same images onto the bottom right corner of the black card base to give a bit of added interest. You can see it a bit better in the close-up photo below:
And that's it! Thanks for visiting.
