The Card Concept #68

Welcome, welcome, I have a short post this morning. I spend some quality time with my craft supplies last evening. I am playing along with the current challenge over at The Card Concept.

My card went in a few different directions before it stayed its course. I am happy with the results. I loosely water coloured my flowers before die cutting them. I added a little shimmer with some Wink of Stella. I alternated with popping up the flowers and leaves to add some dimension. I tossed in a little silver twine and sequins.

I stamped the background with a light gray ink then added some ink blending using colours as close to Line and Aqua as I could. I used a thin gray border for an added layer.

Supplies: White and gray card stock, Altenew - Smile More stamps and dies, Simon Says Stamps - you Matter, silver twine, sequins.

Thanks for stopping by,
