The Last Card of 2013
Can you believe that 2014 is almost here?!! This is another year that has flown by - but I wanted to thank all of my blog readers for stopping by and visiting me throughout the year. I know winter is just getting ready to kick in full gear, so I figured a nice bright flower card would be a great way to end the year. May you have many blessings for 2014!
I used this color inspiration from Lindy's Stamp Gang December Challenge for the inspiration for my card. The colors were brighter than what I normally work with, but I still managed to shabby-chic them up a bit.
After I shaped my flowers, I embossed them using HollyHock/Scarlet Plum EP. I also added the dots to my Hellebore flower using Twilight Blue Slate.
I built up many layers of powder for this architectural element using Aurora Amethyst and Silver Moon Turquoise
I used a Sizzix folder to emboss the wood planks for my background with a bright blue paper and painted it with watered down gesso. I added in some washi tape for texture and spritzed some Blue Hawaiian Blue Starburst spray over the top. I kept layering the mist and the gesso, and added a little bit of the Silver Moon Turquoise and Hydrangea Blue Mauve embossing powders over the raised areas. I really love how the background turned out.
I'll see you back in 2014~ Have a Happy New Year!
