I started this card with all good intentions but my day did not go the way I planned so another one that had to be photographed at night.
I find night photos a. you are lucky to see the sparkle when its added and b. photos are less forgiving. I can see when the paint ended up on the card and was cleaned off. I can't when looking at the card but in each photo I can. Ahh well them the breaks.
I love how this card turned out. At first I was going to do the gems all one colour then thought nah rainbow colours. Then I was thinking of having the gems on the opposite side in the same order so it looked like a necklace but after stamping and silver embossing one side I felt it looked perfect just running down one side and would have looked too busy down both.
I decided to silver emboss this one and will do another with white embossing so I can see if it looks as good or better. Honest;y the painting is just light enough with a bit here and there darker for depth, everything is silver embossed and looks brilliant IRL. One gem I did not clean the area well enough so we have speckles of silver.
I might even do a card where its just silver embossed and no colour added because I liked that look too.
Back to the card
Once the Peerless watercolour had dried I covered each gem with the Wink of Stella Clear glitter and it truly does sparkle.
This is my interpretation of 'Precious'
The sentiment is a combination of two sentiments. The precious along with the gems I used is all a Winnie and Walter set. 'To love and be loved' is part of a PTI sentiment that I cut apart but can be put back together.
I would like to enter this in:
