2nd card for Online Card Class Summer Card Camp 2

This is actually the first card I made, trying to use the sketch and the very unusual colour combo.

These were the sketches and the colour combo suggested:

Here is the 1st card that I made:

I used the same embossing folder as for the previous card (Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Poppy #2001947), but I apply a thin layer of Distress paint in Salty Ocean before embossing my cardstock.

I cut the flower out of the same coloured cardstock I created for the previous card:

I sprayed some inks on my craft mat with Dylusions Ink spray Funky Fushia DYC36760 and Tattered Angels Chalkboard Amethyst #20024.  I sprayed a little water on top, then I dragged my piece of cardstock through the colours a few times to completely coat my cardstock.  I dried with my heat gun.  The Tattered Angels gives a nice shimmer to the colour…

I didn’t think that the colour was dark enough, so I cleaned my mat and spread some Dusty Concord Distress ink on my mat and sprayed with water.

I glided my cardstock through the colour very lightly to add a bit of darker purple.  I dried again with the heat gun.  Then I cut the flower with 2 Memory Box dies – the solid and the outline of Lovely Peony Outline # 98482 and Lovely Peony Background #98483

I added pearls to the center of the flower (Stampin’Up pearls)

The greeting Bonne Fête and the flag die are both by Stampin’Up.  I distressed the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

The butcher’s twine is by The Twinery.

That’s it!  Thanks for visiting my blog.  Merci de votre visite.
