Guest Designing at The Foiled Fox #2

Hello everyone! Hope you had a good start into a new week!  

This is my second guest designer post for The Foiled Fox blog! If you missed my first card, please click here. The Foiled Fox is a one stop shop for crafting, calligraphy and other art projects. The lovely ladies at Foiled Fox are theirselves crafters and know what we want and need :)! 

Today I have a monochromatic card to share with you.

I started by stamping the Full of Glee in light gray on a gray cardstock. I arranged the flowers on the lower half of my panel along with masking when needed. I then colored the flowers using a white Prismacolor pencil. I focused on the outlines and fine lines on the petals. I colored the leaves using light cool gray pencils and added shades around the image in gray as well. To add some bling I covered the flowers with Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen. I can't explain but the clear glitter gave the flowers that subtle pink tone. This is something I should remember...  I die cut the colored panel using a stitched rectangle die and cut the wavy edge of the bottom part by hand. I added a thin strip of white card stock to the wavy edge and stamped the sentiment from Happy Wishes stamp set from Penny Black in Versafine black which I clear heat embossed. I blended Black Soot DI on my black card base and brushed Perfect Pearl Biscotti over it for more shine. I foam mounted the front panel on the black card base and added some clear sequins to finish the card.

Hope you liked my monochromatic take on a great friendship :)! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Please head on over to The Foiled Fox blog for more inspiration! 

Have a wonderful week!

Such beautiful white flowers TaeEun and l love the curved edge and the black coloured piece at the bottom of the card gives great contrast. Some random sequins finish it perfectly too. x
