Whew!! Another hot one today. I hear that a cooling trend is on the way - not too cool though!
This card is for the challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday here I just love this time of year when the sun goes down about 9 p.m. The background of this card reflects a summer sunset against some flowers.
I made a watercolour background using ink pads, an aqua painter and watercolour paper. Then I embossed the images using black embossing powder. The large flower was embossed on Whisper White card stock and then cut out, and later glued to the background. The smaller flower was embossed directly onto the background.
The basic card is Basic Gray card stock, layered with Honeycomb embossed Whisper White. Strips of designer paper (origin unknown) were placed according to the diagram and the image panel was attached to the card.
I made a change to the sketch in that I placed the sentiment on top of the image panel rather than at the bottoom left.
Pearls were placed at the upper right and lower left corners.
