I love all the colors in the inspiration photo. I chose to play off of the rich jewel tones. I started with rustic white card stock and inked up my acrylic block using royal velvet, hawaiian shores, and berry sorbet ink. I spritzed the block and put the card stock down and pressed on the back to ensure full coverage. I dried the card stock with heat tool. I die cut the colored panel with Harlequin Cover Plate. Instead of using the cut out pieces, I used just the negative frame portion. I die cut the piece using Delightful Doily die. I die cut using the same doily die rustic white and vellum card stocks. I stamped the rustic white delightful doily using Polka Dots 2 in harvest gold ink. I glued the harlequin frame and to the polka dotted rustic white doily.
Next, I inked the sentiment from Ruby Rose in versamark and heat embossed with gold ep onto the vellum delightful doily die cut. I felt like a little more gold accenting was needed, so I inked the edges with versamark and heat embossed in gold for a more distressed feel going around the edges. I really love how it turned out. I glued the vellum to the layered doily die diffusing the Harlequin frame. I love the subtle look, yet the colors and pattern can still be seen through the vellum. I die cut rosie posie dies and stamped the coordinating two step images using berry sorbet and pure poppy. I die cut and stamped the leaves from Meadow Greens using Ripe Avocado card stock and ink. I layered the flower and leaves using foam tape on the rosie posie for added dimenson. For the background I stamped the same leaves in versamark for continuity and depth. I glued the royal velvet layer to the royal velvet base and used foam tape to pop up the delightful doily with flower portion. I finished my card with a few touches of gold sequins.
As always thanks so much for hopping by!
