Inked and Textured Background

Inspiration for this card came from the current challenge over at FUSION CARD CHALLENGE.  For each challenge we can create a card based on a sketch, a photo or both.  I decided to use a little each.  After embossing a piece of white cardstock, I used inks that were the same color as the flowers in the inspirational photo and inked the background.  From the sketch, I borrowed the layout and used a scalloped circle die to make a partial cut in the inked, embossed background. I layered this on a piece of black embossed cardstock, adding strips of Washi tape and a sentiment. To finish I layered a flower and added an orange pearl center.

I am also submitting this card for the "Anything Goes" challenge at Celebrate the Occasion and the "Make and Impression" challenge at Catered Crop.

Cardbase: Recollections, Cardstock:Recollections, Darice Embossing Folder, Studio G Ink, Sakura Gel Pen, McGill Flower Punch, Queen & Co Pearl, Scotch ATG Adhesive, Elmer's Glue Spots, Die: Fiskars Fuse
