This week we have a color challenge:
Well, yes, this is a LOT like the challenge I did for the Paper Craft Crew last week! But hey, I'm a brilliant papercrafter! I can handle it! I started out by playing with the Simon Says Stamp set Winter Flowers. I didn't much like what I got at first, so I kept tinkering. I was going to start over when I got a better idea for using what I already had! Lookie:
GOJUS! I used the burnishing technique to color the flowers and leaves. Originally this was the size of the card front, but I cut it down in size with my favorite Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX dies from My Favorite Things. I popped it up over the top of the Crumb Cake card base with fun foam.
I went over the dotted lines with my Signo white gel pen and added a bit more color with the matching marker.
Originally, I thought of stamping a greeting below the focal piece after I had decided to put it in the center of the card, but then I remembered this great script die I had bought from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut 3 copies and glued them all together to give them lots of dimension, but when I layered it up over the flower piece, though, it didn't stand out enough, so I added some highlights and shading with the Emerald Envy marker and the Signo white gel pen. Instead of the dot for the "i" I added a Doodlebug Sprinkle in gold.
This gold cord was the perfect delicate finishing touch!
GOJUS indeed! It just GLOWS!
