Roses In Paris- Thanks
Today I am sharing a fun Mixed Media card on the Artistic Outpost blog using the Roses in Paris background stamp along with ODBD Custom Dies-Thanks and Bitty Blossoms (all items are available at Our Daily Bread Designs).
I am linking this card to the Deep Ocean Challenge #151 “Flowers Everywhere” Challenge as well as the Double “D” Things that Fly Challenge (I love watching birds so I thought of bluebirds :-)).
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the Artistic Outpost blog yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the Roses In Paris background image with embossing ink, stamp onto white cardstock and heat emboss the image with white embossing powder. Once the embossing has cooled, use water-based markers to color the flowers with melon and purple, birds with blue and background with green. Lightly wipe off the ink from the embossed areas using a paper towel.
2). Use a sponge dauber to apply various distress inks over the entire image- I used vintage photo, tea dye, walnut stain and brushed corduroy- lightly wipe off the excess ink from the embossed areas.
3). Fussy cut the panel along the jagged edge of the image and mount onto a piece of white cardstock, trim and mount again onto a piece of olive cardstock before adhering to the white card base.
4). From gold foil and purple cardstock, use the Thanks Die to cut one sentiment from gold and two from purple. Layer the two purple die cuts together before adding the gold on top to give the sentiment dimension and adhere directly to the card front.
5). Die cut and emboss the flowers and leaves from white., purple and olive cardstock using the Bitty Blossoms Dies, layer the flowers and leaves together before adding to the card front.
6). Finish off the card by adding pearls to the flower centers.
It is difficult to photograph foil paper but I hope I have inspired you today with this quick Mixed Media card!
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
