I watercoloured this stamped background during Kathy's30 Day Colouring Challenge and its been sitting there waiting to be used. I White embossed this background stamp that is from MFT on watercolour paper then I used some Zigs going quite heavy in colour in some spots and more like a wash in other areas. This is probably one of my most popular background stamps as it looks fantastic for water colour and Copics or silver/gold/black embossed on coloured cardstock. I have a previous post where I embossed in Gold on Black and used for a wedding card and it looks wonderful.
In this instance I cut the piece in half so I can use for two card front. Before mounting onto the orange background I die cut the 'Sending Sunshine' word die from the panel and also out of Gold Mirror cardstock.
You Cant see it here but the flowers have a wonderful shimmer from the use of Wink of Stella added to them. I wanted you to feel that the panel is all about Sunlight, bright, sunshine.
After I attached the watercoloured panel to the orange card stock I then placed the gold die cut in the negative die cut. I had kept all the little bits to put them back into place.
Once this was done I offset the original 'Sending Sunshine' sentiment so you could see the gold/ golden/sunshine trapped inside. A couple of gems and all finished. I did take the photos in the hope you could see the offset design but its easier to see IRL.
Lets see if I can find any challenges???
A perfect card for the HLS Die Cuts Challenge, and 613 Avenue Create who have an anything goes challenge on at the moment.
A brand new challenge for me and looks very interesting.
If your looking for challenges it might be worth going to have a look.
