Hello and welcome
This week I had fun playing with Hero Arts – Beautiful Day Agapanthus. I love when mine begin to flower. They are just blooming now.
To begin, I stamped the larger ball flower 3 times using a mask and heat embossing it in a glitter EP. It’s the remains of an old bottle so sadly, I’m not sure what brand it is.
I used a navy paper with a glittery sheen to it, so lots of shine all over.
The water colouring used Delicata White Shimmer ink pad with a touch of Brilliance Mediterranean Blue near the centres. This made for super quick colouring with great results!
Next the panel was fussy cut along the RHS. From the offcut, a strip was cut to use along the edge of the back of the card. The flower panel was then attached to some fun foam to layer it up before being attached to a scrap strip of glittery white card stock.
The card was folded so the front is shorter leaving a 2cm wider card back.
A sentiment from Penny Black – Sprinkles and Smiles sentiment set along a strip of vellum, which was then folded over the front panel to attack it, before this section was added to the card front.
Along the edge of the back panel, the navy strip was added along with a very narrow strip of white glitter paper.
I love the sparkle and shine on this card, which was really quite quick to make.
I hope these extra close up photos show the shine and the extended card back.
Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.
I look forward to seeing what you create this week!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I love to read your comments.
Have a great day
