JOSTTT016 A Friend Loves

Hi Friends!

Woohoo! I have the honor of being the Guest Designer for The Joy of Sets Tic-Tac-Toe #016 Challenge!  My mixed media card has the top row across - Flowers-Ribbon-Texture and the far-right hand column down- Texture-Fussy Cut-Designer Paper.

I also used the Splitcoaststampers SC255 Sketch Challenge (this sketch was from 2009)  for the layout and am participating with the As You See It #222 “Recipe Whimsy” Challenge (Flower- Iris, Die Cut- Stitched Rectangle Die, Ribbon- Black Satin, Patterned Paper- background panel behind Iris panel and Something Shiny- Rhinestones).

To create this card:

De-static a piece of white cardstock, stamp the Iris image using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image with water-based markers and fussy cut.

Using a stencil brush with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and a flourish stencil, apply ink to a piece of white cardstock.  Heat set the ink with a heat tool.

De-static the lower right hand area of the cardstock, ink and stamp the sentiment with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.

Die cut the panel with a rectangle stitched die and mount onto black cardstock.  Trim close to the edge of the die cut.

Emboss a piece of white cardstock with a 3D embossing folder, trim and mount onto a piece of black cardstock for the background panel.

Die cut a piece of designer paper with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.  Mount directly onto the background panel.
Layer a piece of textured gray cardstock onto a piece of black cardstock, mount horizontally onto the background panel (per the sketch).

Add a piece of 1” black satin ribbon, wrapping the ends behind the panel.

Mount the stenciled panel onto the card front with dimensional foam (or chipboard).

Adhere the strip of rhinestones and add the Iris image using dimensional foam.

Finish off the card using a clear glitter pen over the petals and a few rhinestones in the corner of the stenciled panel.

What a beautiful card! The stamped, watercolored, and fussy cut iris is lovely, and it looks so nice on the patterned paper background.

Absolutely gorgeous! Love the embossed background which compliments the ruffles and curves of the iris petals. It's a pleasure having you as a Guest Designer with us this month. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is amazing, Julie! That iris is a stunner! And I love your colour palette and all the texture you've incorporated! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenges! Stay well!
