Hello cardmaking friends! I am going to be very interested in your reaction to my card today because I have received VERY mixed reactions from those who I have shown it to thus far! Is it too artsy? Would most people like it? I don't know, so please let me know your reaction.
I created a background with Distress Oxide inks. I have found that sometimes, the backgrounds still need something once I am done with the ink smooshing. If you are having the same feeling about your backgrounds, I think that you should try adding sparkle. I think the easiest way I found so far is to mix a little pool of Perfect Pearls in water, and then flick that onto your background with a paintbrush. They really just come alive with this addition.
For this card, I added both Perfect Gold and Antique Gold. I took photos from a couple angles because I think that helps see the depth of color and sparkle.
This card was so clean and simple, I just die cut a piece of background and stamped the sentiment. The card base was scored a few times to balance the card front.
Supplies: Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, Vintage Photo, Ranger Perfect Pearls, Spellbinders Circle dies, Our Daily Bread Designs Earth Verses stamp set, Versafine Black ink
