Today I have two cards that I am entering in the Twofer Card Challenge #11 with the code word wreath.
Here are my cards:
The wreath stamp was free with a magazine I bought some time ago. The first card is my favourite.
I stamped and heat embossed the wreath in gold, I then used brusho paints all over and picked out detail in the flowers with my Zig clean colour real brush pens. I spritzed the whole thing with cosmic shimmer, heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and painted a strip on the top and bottom of the card base with a gold pen.
Here are a couple of photos that show the shimmer and detail better:
My second card was a bit more of an experiment but I am fairly pleased with how it turned out:
I decided to focus on the contrast between black and white. I heat embossed the wreath stamp in white several times. In my first attempt I tried colouring the flowers with metallic colouring pencils but it didn't really work so I started again and decided to highlight the wreath by using a while pencil. I used a white gel pen to fill the black areas with dots and heat embossed the sentiment in black. Here is a close up:
I quite like the way the black stands out in the wreath.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.
