Hello again Crafters !
It's very unusual for me to post two days in a row, never mind twice in one day, but here I am again, this time with a card for the For Your Inspiration Challenge #31. The photo for this challenge is at the end of this post. If you have a chance, visit FYI's blog to see all the DT & participants creations, they are beautiful !
This card is pretty much the opposite of the clean & simple style from this morning's post :) I was inspired to get my Kaleidacolor Creole Spice Ink out for this challenge by Sylvia at Poppys Papercraft Patch as she used it for her Creation as a DT member. Thank you Sylvia, your creation reminded me that I have Kaleidacolor inks waiting to come out again.
I posted a similar card last fall for an IO challenge, but it had a completely different background and different colours. I also taught a workshop in April 2011 with a similar design. If you were there this will look familiar.
I used my brayer to ink up IO's Cover A Card Large Paisley CC039 with the Creole Spice Kaleidacolor Ink. I use the Mega Mount with CAC stamps.
The Paisleys are from IO's Paisleys set 3061-MD and the center circle is from another IO set Butterflies & Blossoms CL119. All were embossed with gold and coloured by blending Distress Inks and then adding a little accent with Distress Markers. Next I painted over top with Mica Color Interference paints which gives it quite a shine ! I also added some holograph glitter after is was all put together.
Also used: Spellbinder S4143 & CB Paisley Embossing folder for the center strip.
And below is the Inspiration Photo.......
