For those of you who are not familiar with The Card Concept Challenge, it is a bi-weekly challenge that uses an inspiration photo for you to create a card.
You can choose one style and/or a combination of card making styles, the choice is yours! Plus, our Design Team of ten ladies create a card to inspire you.
This beautiful table setting looks like a perfect way to celebrate with your Mother or another special lady in your life. I was inspired by the flowers as well as the blues and white to create a simple Mixed Media card.
I am also linking this card to the Simon Monday “Add a Quote” Challenge along with the Word Art Wednesday #489-#490 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit The Card Concept, or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
Lightly tap Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink pads onto a silicone crafting mat, spritz with water and press a piece of white cardstock into the ink.
Lift the panel and re-press into the ink until you are satisfied with the background, drying with a heat tool.
De-static the lower right-hand side of the panel with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from the retired Serve the Lord stamp set (Divinity Designs formerly Our Daily Bread Designs) with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Trim the edges of the background panel and mount onto a white card base.
De-static another panel of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the leaves and flowers from the retired Choose Happiness stamp set (Stampin’ Up!) with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the images with water-based markers and fussy-cut.
Mount the leaves and flowers onto the card front.
Use a clear glitter pen to add sparkle to the flowers and finish off the card with an extra fine white paint pen.
