One of the challenges I am entering this card in stipulates 'bright and beautiful' which is exactly what some of Tim Holtz Distress Ink colours are!
The colours actually look less vibrant in the photo but they are truly 'bright and beautiful' in real life! The background is done by smooshing Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Twisted Citron Distress Inks on my craft sheet, spritzing with water then laying a piece of gloss card in it and wiggling it about a bit. Then while still wet, I laid a piece of cling film over the top and scrunched it up then left it to dry then removed the cling film. I love the effect this gives on the gloss card so I kept my stamping really simple as I didn't want to cover too much of it up. The stamping is done with black Archival ink and the stamps are from a set called Nature 1 by IndigoBlu. I attached the panel to a black DL card base then added the black pearls and some gold and stardust Stickles for sparkle. I think anything sparkly is 'bright and beautiful! I decided not to add a sentiment then the card can be used for any occasion.
I would like to enter the following the challenges:
IndigoBlu - All Things Bright and Beautiful
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes
The Craft Barn - All Around the House - I used clingfilm for my background which is found in the
All such cool blog challenges!
