I watched a video from Kristina Werner today where she cut out delicate flowers and layered them on a circle frame, using a watercolored background. I believe she had different colors than me, but I tried her technique and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries, Dusty Concord and Mowed Lawn. I die cut the flowers with a Dancing Tulips die from Memory Box and layered them on top of the watercolored layer, which had been inserted into the circle frame (I had in my stash). Finally, I put everything on top of a layer of black before adding the patterned paper from Gina K Designs Love Letters. I wrapped a thin red ribbon around the layered pieces and put it on a black onyx cardstock base. Before putting everything away, I added the sentiment from Gina K Designs Bold and Beautiful stamp set, cut with a Spellbinders Oval die.
OK, did you follow all that? This was not an easy card to make, and it was very time-consuming but I like the end result. Now that I've done it once, I might try it again with different colors.
Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your visits and your comments very, very much. Hope you are having a good day, and I'll see you again soon!
