I had so many ideas for this one (watercolour, distress inks, colour blocking) but decided to go with some heat embossing / resist. Here’s my card:
I began by stamping the various doily images from WPlus9’s Damask Doilies set onto a piece of white cardstock with Versamark Ink. I sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.
I then made a few puddles of ink on my craft mat with Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Inks, spritzed with water and laid the embossed cardstock into it. I repeated this process until the non-heat embossed areas were saturated with colour.
Once the panel was dry, I sponged some Delicata Golden Glitz ink over the doilies for a bit of added sparkle (looks great in real life, but I couldn’t pick it up in my photos!). To clean up, I wiped off the excess ink from the embossed areas. I trimmed the panel at an angle and die-cut the word ‘Grateful’ using Penny Black’s Words of Gratitude.
I used the same die to cut the word out of some brown shimmer cardstock a few times and adhered them together to create a thicker die-cut. The embossed / coloured panel was adhered straight down onto a white card base and then slotted the die-cut word into place.
To finish up, I added a wood veneer butterfly, which was first coloured with co-ordinating Copic markers. I then went over it with some clear Wink of Stella before adding a generous amount of Glossy Accents. This gives you a really cute, epoxy resin like embellishment!
