Today's card was made using a chipboard tag that I had painted with Creative Inspirations Paints in Tutu Pink and Mellow Yellow. I love pink and yellow together as it reminds me of spring flowers (think roses especially), so I use them together every chance I get. Once the paint was dry I stamped it with the sentiment and some leafy flourishes.
I also wanted to use a piece of background paper that I had made months ago using the acrylic block technique and waterbase markers on a piece of glossy paper. The finished product looked so like a sunset and I've been waiting for a chance to use it ever since. The marbled colors on the tag sort of blend in with the sunset-ty colors, don't you think?
Here is a view of the tag and orange mat that show the shimmery qualities, especially of the mat. It was dark coral, but I brushed the edges with Rose Quartz which turned it a slightly pinker color, then I inked the edges with distress ink.
Look closely at the tag for a sneek peak of a new product that Creative Inspirations is about to release. Fun!
A satin bow and some rhinestones complete this card. Thank you for joining me, and I hope you'll head on over to the Creative Inspirations challenge blog and play along. This fortnight's challenge is Mother's Day. See you there!!
