Its’ been a while since my last post but life has been throwing some curve balls and I’ve gotten side-tracked. Once in awhile you’ve got to step back, take a deep breath, tackle the hard stuff and then move on. I am still tackling some hard stuff but will try to keep this blog going in the process!
Remarkable You Sunburst card was created for my April 2016 Creative Card Design classes.
I used Remarkable You stamp set as the focal point of the card. The lotus blossom was stamped with VersaMark on watercolor paper, coated with white embossing powder and then heat set. I then wet down the petals with just water, using an aqua painter, and then went back and filled in with Calypso Coral. I shaded with Watermelon Wonder and fussy-cut the flower after it dried.
For the background I used the Sunburst Thinlit on Lost Lagoon card stock and a polka dotted embossing folder on Soft Sky. A yellow scallop circle was the backdrop for a Lost Lagoon scallop circle which was placed in the Lovely Lace embossing folder. There are a couple large flower patterns on that embossing folder, and I placed the scallop circle right behind one of them. The raised image was sponged with Lost Lagoon. The card base is Island Indigo.
