This card came together by itself really. I wanted to colour the image from the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set after it had been white embossed on Crumb Cake Cardstock. I was thinking of a technique where you colour white then add colour.
Then I saw a beautiful card by Emma Goddard, a British member of the 2018 Artisan Design Team. She white-embossed images from the All That You Are Stamp Set on Sahara Sand Card and coloured them with watercolour pencils. The result was vivid and beautiful. I have shared it on my business Facebook page with a link to her blog. There is a link to my page at the bottom of the sidebar at the right.
The colours I used are Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape and Rich Razzleberry. Flowers were stamped and coloured on a scrap, then fussy cut and 3D’d on another panel of Crumb Cake which had been stamped and white embossed with the same image. I added a White Glossy card mat to tie in with the Embossing and a few pearls and decided not to add a greeting.
I was really happy with how the card turned out. I’d love to know what you think.
Do you recognise this card as being similar to the one on the cover of the Sale-A-Bration Brochure? It is another joint creation by Vicki and myself. I wanted a card for the display board at my launch which showed the main image from the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set cut up into smaller images, showing its versatility. It also shows that anyone can make beautiful cards just by case-ing other works. Copy And Share Everything is what this means, in case you were wondering. And it is polite to link back to the work that inspired you.
Once again, Vicki did the colouring and I did the assembly and stamping. The colours are Highland Heather and Calypso Coral. We had fun, as usual. I think this is a lovely card. What do you think?
