Textured Card with Paper Flowers
Hello everyone, thank you for joining me today! Our challenge this week on Secret Garden is very special: we need to use a stencil, texture paste or embossing paste, and color spray and of course a lot of paper flowers. I really enjoy creating this project because texture and flowers are my obsessions. Take a look at my card:
To create this I used Calypso Coral card base and Very Vanilla card stock for the decorated layer. I created my texture using Creative Medium Purple and a Dream Weaver stencil. I let the paper dry and some time after, I colored the digital butterfly using Prismacolor color pencils and fussy cut it with my scissors. I also die cut some branches using textured card stock. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set Faith Quotes using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and created a different form of mat to this sentiment using Basic Black card stock.
The creative medium is iridescent and with a metallic touch that I love. I decided to paste the butterfly first and then arrange the paper flowers around it. In this opportunity I used three Mulberry Paper Open Roses on Purple or Lilac, two Aster Daisy in Lilac and two in white. Then I added the branches and when I was totally satisfied with the look of my card I added some ink splatter of Glimmer Mist French Lime from Tattered Angels.
I hope this project inspires you to combine these amazing paper flowers with your digital stamps, your regular stamps and with many textures and inks.
