Oh this card. I mean, I just LOVE everything about IT! Funny that I picked that sentiment to go with it. Haha.
I always talk about how I’m inspired by the MFT challenges. This is no different. I took their sketch and color challenge to create this beauty. I think it might be one of my most favorites. I don’t know why… I just love it.
So the sketch challenge asked for three sections across the top. In my head, I thought I could cut this lovely bouquet in 3 parts, but allow them to stand together, with the middle section popped up. So they are separate, yet together, if you look at it from afar. What do you think?
The florals are done with copic markers. I blended my favorite Catherine Pooler inks (Pink Champagne) under the area where I knew the flowers would fall. I used a stencil of dots (also CPDesigns) to add some subtle interest and then moved the stencil and added glitter glue for sparkly dots.
I raised up the middle section of the floral and put some golden twine behind it (from Stampin’ Up). I’m not sure why, but I also added some score markings. And then I covered the edges with the same ink I had blended with. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set (which I also love!).
I even created a video of this card! One of my new ventures in crafting! But… I can’t load it here unless I have an upgrade. So check for me on Facebook (The Crafting Life) or Instagram (@sarah.greber) to see it!
I love the pinks and grays. Can’t get enough! Now, who should I send this lovely card to?
