Today I have a card to share with you which I made for the current sketch challenge at The Flower Challenge! Our talented teammate Vivien has created this sketch for us.
CAS card for the first DT post for this sketch. But this time I went with a busy background :)!
This background was made using Copic markers on a Yupo paper. It was on my to do list for a while. And after seeing Jennifer McGuire's post last week I decided to give this a try.
I started off by scribbling black and cool gray markers on a Yupo paper. I then sprayed rubbing alcohol on it and blew the inks around. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result. Next I die cut the hugs with a word die by The Ton from a Glossy silver glitter paper and once again from a red fun foam. I stacked them together and cut it into a rectangle. The peony is from Loose Peonies stamp set by The Ton. I silver heat embossed a peony on a pink vellum, die cut it with coordinating die and colored it with Copic markers on the back of the vellum.
I then silver heat embossed some leaves and a bud on the background panel. I glued the background panel flat on a black card base, mounted the sentiment panel and the peony on it.
The finishing touch was some Glass Slipper Round Confetti by The Ton.
Black background is not usual for a floral card, but I like how it turned out.
I hope you could give this technique a try!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Looking forward to seeing your projects in the gallery of The Flower Challenge!
Have a nice weekend!
