Blue Romance


I love this design!  It is inspired by  Sheena Douglass, using her stamps and techniques, but with my take on things.  The base card is Centura Pearl, with a botanical swirl image stamped and heat embossed on one side of the card, using a two- tone embossing powder.  Silver liquid pearls have been dotted along the stems to add more interest and texture.  The background panel is created from white card that has been coloured with Radiant Rains, and spritzed with a Cosmic Shimmer mist.  This gives the panel a lovely shimmer and vibrant colour.  When dry the panel is randomly stamped with text, using second generation black Distress ink.  Then the botanical swirl is stamped in one corner of the panel with clear ink, and heat embossed using silver embossing powder.  A dragonfly image is stamped and embossed in the same way.  The botanical swirl image is painted with H2O's and the little buds are glazed with Glossy Accents.  Liquid Pearls are again used to enhance the image.  The panel is matted and layered on to plain black and silver mirror card.  A smaller panel is cut from the same card as the panel and a sentiment is stamped and embossed on to it to match the rest of the design.  Silver Brilliance ink has been added around the edge of the panel, then it is matted and layered in the same way as before.
