The latest PTI LFF challenge is to use your favorite PTI accessory. I love the grograin ribbon, but my favorite has to be rainstones. I was lucky enough to have some given to me by a friend several years ago & I'm hoarding them--haha! I have other clear dots, but must admit they aren't the same. My simple rainbow card began by white embossing the image from Lovely Layers across a scrap of white cardstock.
Then I brushed on Distress Inks festive berries, ripe persimmon, squeezed lemonade, shabby shatters & tumbled glass. The sentiment from Corner Adorner: Februray was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black & I added black splatters. The panel was backed with a couple layers of cardstock for a bit of dimension & rainstones are the finishing touch. I'm also entering Stamping Sensations & WAW.
Next is my entry for SSS Flickr Challenge: Friendship. I gold embossed the flower, stem & leaves from SSS Spring Flowers on watercolor paper. Then I scribbled with Distress Markers spiced marmalade & wild honey for the flower with lucky clover & peeled paint for the stem & leaves. I found it a little tricky to spritz enough water to blend without washing away too much color. Love the results, though.
After the papers were dry, I used the coordinating dies. The frame from SSS Frames was die cut several times from ivory cardstock. I double gold embossed the sentiment from SSS Thoughtful Messages on one of the interior panels you get when you cut the frame. I lightly brushed the center with Distress Inks mowed lawn & salty ocean. You can't really see it in the photo, but makes a big difference in person. The frame was stacked several high & attached around the single interior panel already glued to the card front. The pretty yellow irridescent gems given to me by a friend were the perfect embellishment. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & W2CB.
