Hello and welcome to my stop on the Celebrating Kindness blog hop hosted by Julia Altermann. Not only are we celebrating her reaching 10K YouTube subscribers, but today also happens to be her birthday, so happy birthday Julia!!
For my card I created a floral card and tried to give it a vintage look with shadow colouring and black embossing that kind of looks textured.
I stamped the large floral background from Hero Arts onto a Bristol cardstock panel with Versafine Onyx black ink and then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Bristol paper doesn't stamp as well as regular cardstock so the flowers look textured and uneven which is how I wanted them to look.
Once it was all embossed, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to colour in all of the flower and leaf images by starting with a darker colour and then blending it out with a lighter colour. I love how vibrant these colours look on this cardstock and they blend so easily.
I created the sentiment by embossing the outline smile onto the diecut word that I had cut from silver sparkle cardstock and then I adhered it over top of a piece of vellum with the rest of the sentiment stamped on a black strip of cardstock.
I added a striped piece of patterned paper to the left side with a strip of silver sparkle cardstock as well and then finished the card with some clear sequins.
You can see how I created my card in the video below:
