Last night I finally finished a card for EH Pin-Sights Challenge. The inspiration is so beautiful--I'd totally have that cake & bouquet if I could go back in time! I've been trying to design a card with EH Bold Blossoms die cut from gold cardstock with a pink & orange background--inspired by the cake. Yesterday morning I watched Jennifer's video using the old acrylic block technique & decided that would be perfect.
I used DI picked raspberry & ripe persimmon. One thing I learned from the video was to leave the block in place for 5 minutes. That gave me gorgeous, deep colors which I'll use for another card. This piece was done by spritzing again without adding more ink, so it's a bit lighter. The Hero Arts sentiment from Find Joy was stamped several times in HA Cup O' Joe using my Mini MISTI & I added tiny splatters of the brown. Tried something new--added a drop of gold Pico Embellisher to the gold PPP sequins. This will be a birthday card for a blogging friend. I'm also entering ABNH, DRU, Paru's CMC & SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.
