Hello – Card full of texture
Hi friends, today’s card was inspired by Simon Says Stamp last Wednesday’s Challenge. The theme was “Add Some Texture” and they were featuring Tim Holtz products, so I did the same with today’s card. I ended up submitting another card which I made together with this one. You can check it out here.
For my card, I used a patterned paper which is actually just a plain grey-brown colored paper and die cut it using largest stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. I dry embossed the die cut panel to add wood texture using Tim Holtz Birch embossing folder.
Next I die cut several flowers using Tim Holtz Sizzix Small Tattered Florals Thinlits Die. I used blue and yellow cardstock from my stash for the flowers and green for leaves. I layered multiple flowers, small and big, using a foam square and also added a sequin to the center. I shaped the petals to make them look more dimensional and did the same with leaves. I also added additional shading to the petals using Spectrum Noir pens.
I arranged all these flowers and leaves in a cluster in one corner and adhered some with liquid glue, some with foam squares. Finally I adhered a sentiment sticker using foam tape + some sequins using liquid glue and (almost) called it done.
Well, I just could not leave this card alone, so I decided to add some shimmer on the petals using my Wink-of-Stella. I wanted to increase the amount of shimmer, so I tried to squeeze it and accidentally spilled a lot of it on one of the flowers. A big whoopsie! But I totally decide to rock it and spread the spilled shimmer liquid across several parts of the card like I #absolutelyMeantToDoThat :-)
Do tell me how you liked this card. It is not my usual color combo of pinks and greens or yellows and purples, but I did like how this turned out. What lesson did I learn from this? Don’t be afraid to get messy and make new mistakes! :-)
