I made this card using Laurie Willison's challenge to use a cover plate as a stencil and add embossing paste or in my case, I used Glossy Accents instead.
I started by cutting a Basic Bookmark #3 in Melon Berry cardstock. I used the Hearts Cover Plate and added the Glossy Accents down the center of my bookmark. While that was drying, I cut the daffodil from Year of Flowers and stamped it in fine linen ink and gave water coloring another try. There are so many talented artists out there who can make theirs look so good. I'm not one of them but I do want to learn and I love the water colored look.
Once everything was dry, I added a doily to the back of the bookmark. Another look I've been loving is string under a focal point so I added some under the daffodil. I gave my bookmark a Melissa Phillips "junk bow" (LOVE!) and added some yellow candy dots from Queen & Co. Everything is mounted onto a Kraft cardstock base.
Since this card has lots of texture, I'm also adding it to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge,
the tropical colors make it perfect for the Simon Says Monday Challenge,
and the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
