I think I've mentioned before that it's rare that I see a card in blogland and then run right down to my craft room to make something! It happened recently though.
Saw this amazing card by Janette K as part of the Spellbinders blog hop. It occurred to me that I could do something similar using a cover plate die. AND one of the alcohol ink on Yupo backgrounds I'd just created (maybe you saw these on IG). I'm so proud of myself. I used a BG right away! That doesn't happen often either when I get into one of those create-a-zillion-BGs moods.
alcohol ink Watermelon, Red Pepper, Sunshine Yellow
white embossing powder
I was so impressed with Janette's use of the bold red colors I just trimmed the full die cut down to have only the bloom and a couple leaves. I traced it onto my Yupo and then used scissors to cut that panel. Glued them together with Multi Matte medium.
I loved the use of B/W in the form of the sentiments randomly stamped on the original card, but decided to use black for my die cut and bring in the B/W with the PP. Love that sentiment stamp.
Come back tomorrow for another card along these lines. Used that warped Yupo BG I created in cool tones...
I would like to take this to:
