I'm here with a spring-themed card for some challenges:
(Spring! The ultimate new beginning every year!)
(NBUS product & technique: pearl maker!)
This card was very hard to photograph but I hope you can have a feel of it from he photo anyway! It's already dark here in Finland so I've used unnatural light for the picture... And the heat embossed background sort of vanishes from sight where there's more shadow. Anyway.. The whole bg is heat embossed with white powder using a large, old bg stamp I have. Great for adding texture and interest for CAS I think! The sentiment stamp comes from Verve. The flower stamp is by Papertey Ink and one of my favorite stamps ever, I use it year after year. I like to shade with Copics but this flower is fun to color without shading, just using one marker for one area of the flower and then changing to a slightly different shade. This stamp is great for someone who wants to use markers but is maybe not so much into shading! I've also added interest with white gel pen + a super old pearl maker that I've had for years and NEVER used on a card. I was surprised it worked this well! I've got to start using this stuff! You can see the effect pretty well in the close-up. Hope you like! Thanks for popping by!
