And don't forget to stop by and see if you were a winner from last week AND check out all the amazing design team creations while you are there!
My favorite style is when I have plenty of time and can add lots of layers and embellishments to a card - doesn't happen often. :D I hear clean and simple (CAS) is all the rage right now but even my CAS style tends to have a few more layers than a TRUE CAS. HA HA!! Can't help myself.
This particular card is for a very, very dear friend who lost her mother unexpectedly - it still causes me to catch my breath and leaves my heart in the pit of my stomach. So sudden, totally unexpected and THAT is the life cycle. :( Still makes me uber sad.
JUGS258) of water color with the large flower and used Verve Visual's MOJO layout (MOJO363). The image was colored with 2 distress markers and spritzed with water then stamped on to Strathmore water color paper. I then spritzed the entire circle with MFT's Sheer Shimmer Mist...but that wasn't quite enough sparkle so I covered each petal with clear Wink of Stella. Tough to see IRL; but its super shimmery!
I added a woodgrain heart, colored with Copics and a heavy layer of glossy accents. A vellum flag, some machine stitching, and pearls finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by; hope you take some time this week to show us YOUR STYLE! Have a great weekend!
