The theme this month for The Flower Challenge is One Layer Card
I then used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched circle die Face down on my cardpanel, sandwiched between a soft embossing mat with my die cutting plates and ran it through my spellbinders die cutting machine. This creates an embossed circle rather than cutting all the way through. I love how this gives you different ways to use your dies and adds an element of interest.
Then I used my heat gun to ensure all the ink designs were thoroughly dry. Next I prepped my base with an anti-static powder bag, stamped the final layer with clear versamark ink and used hero arts gold embossing powder and my heat gun to create the final layer.
I wanted to add gold highlights to my sentiment and the leaves also so I used a new to me product – tonic nuvo embossing pen. This works in the same way as versamark ink but it is in a handy pen form. I found I needed to go over some areas twice but I just love that I was able to make those two tone letters! Some sequins adhered with multi medium matte glue finish the card.
I am so happy with the way this turned out, I hope you have been inspired too. For more inspiration check out my fellow team members at The Flower Challenge and I hope you will play along with us this month. Looking forward to seeing your designs.
