Today's card was made for three challenges. The color challenge was most
difficult because nowhere did I have the color Pansy until I saw the glitter paper in my stash. The talented Design Team was a big help in combining these colors. And the sketch challenge provided a layout that I loosely interpreted to create the end result. I will be mailing this to a family member in Florida who has an October birthday.
Click on the photos for a closer view. In this photo, the Wink of Stella did not photograph well.
On a white card base, a panel of glitter paper was adhered and framed. Next, a panel of DSP with tiny hearts and stamped off with the floral design was framed and adhered with foam tape. The focal point was made by heat embossing the image in black, adding color with an Aqua Painter and dye inks and adding a coat of clear Wink of Stella. It was backed with a panel of black cardstock and also popped up for dimension. Sequins were added. The inside of the card was decorated with stamping the flowers with black ink and coloring with an Aqua Painter and dye ink.
