I'm bouncing off the walls with excitement because this afternoon I'm attending the beginners Brayer Workshop by Michelle Zindorf, WAHOO!!! I love her cards and am really looking forward to learning a new technique. Hopefully soon I will be sharing some brayering cards with all of you!
This beautiful card was created for the OWH Stars and Stamps stash challenge, "Pot of Gold". The challenge is to use anything gold in making your card... anything gold that is not or does not have glitter that is. I'm a HUGE fan of hardware embellishments so I immediately dug out all things gold in my craft room and came across this gorgeous gold filigree I got several years ago (back in my scrapbooking days) and decided to finally put it to use! No sense in hanging on to it just because I love it, right!
My card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White cardstock. Next I cut 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Blush Blossom cardstock, cut the edges using the Fiskars Deckled Edge Scissors, embossed it using the Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder and attached it to the card base. The strip is a 1 x 5 1/2 piece of gold foil cardstock. I wrapped white grosgrain ribbon around it and tied a beautiful bow in front then before attaching to the card base.
The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Spring Flowers stamp and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edges, layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock and attached to the card base using mounting tape. To embellish the card I took a white paper flower and colored it black using my inkpad and a sponge. I then punched a smaller flower out of Blush Blossom cardstock and layered it in the center of the black flower using a gold flower filigree and small gold brad.
Hope you have an exciting day!
