Do you ever have days where a vision is in mind and you make a dud? Oh, man. I'll spare you the scary pictures, but it was B A D.
I originally wanted this card to be on dark cardstock, embossed with the same layout, but it didn't work. 'Nuff said.
Regarding Dahliah's in Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler embossed on vellum (because it wouldn't dry) and Cherry Cobbler candy dots. Clean and simple!
Day 5's card I felt like I needed to start pulling out some techniques (otherwise my cards would all start looking the same). This card broke me out of my comfort zone, which is a good thing!
I used the ink block technique, where you use color ink, either from markers or ink pads, onto the clear acrylic block, spritz with water and then stamp direct to paper. I madee sure to really press it down and then let it sit for just a second so the ink can soak in. Since I had a good amount of ink still on the block, I rotated it 90 degrees and stamped again. It's a gorgeous technique that gives a wonderful watercolor background.
I then used the 'You've got this' stamp set and embossed the flower in black. I used the aqua painter and Bravo Burgundy (ret), More Mustard (ret) and Garden Green inks to color the flower. Some added sequins added a little pop to the card for that finished look.
At first I was not sure about the border, but the more I look at it, I really start to like it. I really wanted to add ribbon, twine or anything to break up the white space, but in the end it is better left alone.
