Today is an exciting day as I've been asked to be this week's Guest Designer for the ever so lovely challenge blog, Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge (IBSIC).
Each week they offer a different color challenge and wonderfully creative, diverse inspiration samples from their very talented Design Team, and it is huge honor to get to play with them this week!
Today's card is for this week's Challenge #43 and we are to use the colors white, saffron yellow and pink. If you don't have exactly those colors, no worries! Just come as close as possible with what you do have.
I love these colors, and it seemed only natural to make something romantic with lots of lacy effects, hence my anniversary easel card.
The sentiment and frame stamps have been embossed in gold, plus I've created my own background papers on some of the layers, including stamping on already- printed dp. The large yellow rose was made by me, the little teeny tiny roses are from IBS. Sooo cute!
This little heart is made of wood, which I've painted with several layers of CI paints, Ivory and Tutu Pink. I would have loved to have painted a rose on it, but my painting skills are less than noteworthy, especially when it comes to roses, one of the most difficult of all flowers to paint. I'm going to learn! In the meantime, this is a small sticker which I've sealed with a couple of layers of Mod Podge.
A few loops of various ribbons, including a small piece of crochet ribbon, a few leaves and pearls, and my card is complete.
Thank you for taking time to stop by today, and do try to visit IBSIC to play in their challenge. They would love to have you!
