Today I wanted to share an everyday card I created which highlights some of the things I love most -- flowers and "shabby" pastels! I love it!!
This card has a lot going on, I know, but I think it works... I have 'fessed up before -- though I love simplicity (and admire it in others' work), it just hasn't ever been my thing! :)
I created the flower using a technique I described in this post. It's such a fun technique (warning: can produce really sore fingers! :) and packs a punch. The flourishes I die-cut on kraft cardstock and then applied a couple of layers of gesso for texture. Just before the final layer dried completely, I added some Rock Candy Stickles for sparkle (add just before the gesso dries so that you can mix them together for extra texture!).
Hope you like it -- please let me know what you think! I appreciate you stopping by and would love to hear from you! :)
