Flower Card for Sketch and Stash Challnge #52
The base card is black to enhance the colour of the flowers and image. The pink layer started off as white card which was sprayed with various glimmer mists and whilst they were wet a layer of cling film was placed over the top and scrunched around to concentrate the mica into the creases to give a lovely effect which can just be seen in the photo. Another black mat completes the layering.
The gold ribbon was positioned with double sided tape before the large flowers were bonded in place with Pinflair glue.
The image of the poppies (Elusive Images) was stamped onto watercolour card, with Versamark ink and embossed with Gold WOW embossing powder. The iamge was coloured with Aquamarkers and the colours blended with a brush and extra water. Once dry, it was cut out with a circular Nestability and matted onto a gold (to match the embossing and the ribbon) mat which was also cut out in the same way.
Due to the depth of the flowers, the central image had to have 3 large foam pads stacked up to be able to stick it in place.
