Hello everyone !
This is my third post this week but I won't be back until next week sometime as I'm getting ready for a couple of classes coming up at Crop Circles and other activities. I'm looking forward to working with the creative ladies again :)
The challenge at Impression Obsession this week is to use a "Favourite Saying or Quote". IO has a great selection of quotes & sentiments and the one I used on the card below is my favourite.
Impression Obsession Stamps: CC079 CAC Lg. Kaleidoscope & C3541 'If you are grateful'
Dies: Cheery-Lynn- Designs, B127 Tropical Flourish
Spellbinder, S4-347 Labels Twenty-Three
Crealies, CL CF 19 - Creative Flowers
Embossing Powders: Stamp Stuff - Kaleidoscope Transparent & Stampendous - Clear
Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry
Colorbox Pigment Ink: Harbor
The background was created with the Cover a Card stamp & Kaleidoscope EP on white cardstock. This powder adds a beautiful holograph sparkle that is hard to see in photo. I used all three Distress Inks on the background which blended into additional beautiful colours. I was inspired to use these colours together when I saw the creation at Gay's Blog Post here at Crafty Musings
I also used white cardstock for all the die cuts and blended the same DI inks again except Mustard seed, so that there would be a contrast to the background. I used Harbour ink for the sentiment and embossed with clear.
You can see a bit of the glitter on the background on the close-up below, but the actual card is quite 'sparkly'.
That's all for today, thanks for your visits & kind comments !
Have a great weekend,
