PTI blog hop - touch of gold
Man oh man, did this card ever give me trouble! I was inspired by Japanese chiyogami paper and wanted to create something like it. At first I wanted to use Mini blooms, but that was more gold than I wanted. Then I had trouble arranging the flowers 'just so'. It's still not quite how I envisioned it, but I finally gave up.
I found the perfect floral in an unlikely place - Strawberry patch set! I embossed the outline large flower in gold and filled in with copic, embossed the solid small flower in clear, and stamped the large solid flower in versamark and white. I added white dots with a pen, and some sparkly accents to the clusters.
I couldn't find a nice match for the sentiment so I stamped once in Berry sorbet, and overtop in Wet cement.
Enjoy the rest of the hop!
Supplies; Stamps - Strawberry patch, Mini blooms (sentiment), Paper - Sweet blush, white, Other - Gold embossing powder, clear embossing powder, white gel pen, silver gel pen.
