Black and Blue Beauty

This lovely design is another inspired by Sheena Douglass, using her stamps.  I love the colour scheme that I chose, and the big, bold 'in your face' feel of the design.  The base card is a lovely electric blue shade, the corners are rounded using a punch, then the edges of the card are tinted with Black Soot Distress ink.  The background panel is a piece of black card that has been spritzed with a silver glimmer mist.  This gives it a beautiful sheen.  The panel is then embossed in a folder through a machine, and edged with a silver Krylon pen.  It is matted on to black card and layered on to the base card.  A piece of white card is coloured with Radiant Rain pourables and glimmer mists which are blended together.  When dry the card is randomly stamped with the image of a large flourish using second generation ink.  Several flower images of various sizes are stamped and heat embossed in black on to the card, then cut out and shaped to give dimension.  The flowers are then layered and held together with a brad.  The brad is covered with glue and glittered to make the center of the flower.  A large botanical flourish is stamped and heat embossed on to the same card, then painted with Lumiere paints.  The floral buds are glazed with Glossy Accents, and liquid pearls are added to create texture.  Some foliage is made in the same way.  When dry all the images are cut out, and attached to the card with dimensional glue.  A beautiful worker card that is sure to please!
