I hope you are all well. I am here with my latest card creation which is for the latest Time Out Challenge. I absolutely adored the inspiration given which is an amazing card by Virginia Lu as seen below….
How can you not be inspired by this amazing card? I really loved the layout of it and so I decided to replicate this in my version. I am really loving a black and white colour scheme with a flash of colour and so decided to go with that for this card. Here is my version…
I apologise that my photos are not so great lately. I am just busy with lots of things just now and so it has to be quick compact camera snapshots instead of my proper SLR photos!!!
For this card, I began with a white base card and layered it with black, then white again. I added a strip of black and white patterned paper - this in infact some gift wrap that I fell in love with!! I also added (and this was a first to try this) a strip of card with a strip of double sided tape added and sprinkled with white glitter. I am LOVING the result!! I die cut then stamped both sizes of Uniko Studio Pure Floral Chrysanthemums (yes, it's my favourite stamp). I embossed them with clear EP and then coloured both with spectrum noir markers in a bright fuchsia. I added these on to my pattern panel after adding some swirls of pink & white twine. I then stamped the Best Wishes sentiment by Waltzing Mouse on a rectangular piece of card and splashed it with some water-colour paint. I added some pearls to bring this panel alive a little. The card was finished off with some sequins as per Virginia's card.
I am actually really pleased with this card. It is quite different to what I would usually do, but I like it. I adore the layout and that is one I would most definitely use again.
Thank's for taking a look and any comments are always very much appreciated.
