I hope your days are bright, I loved these color combination from April challenge @w&w . Heather chose a perfect colouring that are calming pretty and gorgeous .
There was a story behind making these two card. I wanted to make them with a video and after I finished everything and I was recording I discovered that it stoped recording in the meddle because there was not enough space in the memory. So I made anather card and after I finished there was a technique issues in the saving so it didn’t complete the process and I had a unreaded file at the end. I though that is enough for me . as a newbie in recording my card making process I thought shouldn’t recorded this card again.
Ok let’s go back to my cards. I used distress oxide to creat these background after I mailed the edges of the cards and the flower with masking tape. I used these colours from distress oxide ..
In the first card I used more of Broken China , Salty Ocean ,and Peacock Feathers And for cracked pistachio I put in around the flower. . And for that I love more in distress oxide that you add a lighter layer over a darker layer easily .
For the flower I coloured it with grey and worm grey prismacolor pencil .
For the second card it was exactly like the fist one but I make it a smooth blending of colors with ombré effect. I stamped these lovely words on gray on this dreamy background I love this touch on this card with the white acrylics splatter and the black sentiment.
I ended with two scrapes of coated plastic paper full with these distress oxide inks . So i found it a bonus to make an extra card for this challenge I used smooching technique to creat this background them I stamped this image from the same stamp set coloured it with ballpoint pens . I love who they pop behind this background I used teals , light blue , and brown in colouring the flower itself and for the leave and the stem I used 2 shades of green with a brown. I found that white embossed sentiment over a black card stock would be the best for adding the last detail on this card..
I am entering these challenges .
I was inspired with Shay card color combination it was a lovely colours with the added of the yellow.
I hope you like these card.
