Anyone else surprised by how quickly Wednesday has come around this week? I think being away at the weekend messed with my perception of days! Nonetheless it is Wednesday, which means it’s time for a new Watercooler Wednesday challenge. This week we are looking for feminine projects.
First I dry embossed my muted yellow card base with an embossing folder from Darice called Scroll Frame. I then went over it very lightly with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to help the embossing stand out from the background. I also used the same embossing folder on a piece of vellum so that I could fussy cut it out to perfectly fit within the central portion of the frame.
My focal panel is stamped using two stamps from the Creative Expressions John Lockwood Lily of the Valley Elements stamp set. I coloured it in with my Yosoo alcohol markers, then fussy cut the oval out.
Whilst I don’t dislike this card I don’t love it either. I like the focal panel – I think it’s very pretty in its simplicity. I think perhaps the embossed background is a bit too much for my preference though. A bit busier than I prefer. Not bad exactly, but different.
