A Little Note to Say..., Two Challenges
Today I created this card for the flower challenge at Young Crafters Unite as well as the sketch challenge at Card Patterns. I inked the background behind the flowers, working from the center to the outside edges. I started with yellow ink, then an orange and finally a red ink. I drew in stems and leaves with a colored pencil and then used a white-out pen to give the impression of text across the inked page. I inked the flowers, leaving a little white edge as I trimmed around them. I added gems to the center of the flowers and printed my sentiment on vellum. I adhered my sentiment with thin mini dots and added gems to cover the dots. Inspiration also came from Darlene at Darlene Design. She is such a talented designer and an awesome teacher. Darlene demonstrated a technique that used embossing resist with ink blending. She used a stamp with text on it to do the embossing resist. I don't have such a stamp so I adapted the technique and used the "white-out" pen to give the impression of text.
