I made this card for my BFF whose anniversary is on April 1st. No, her marriage is not a joke (get it? April Fools Day? Hee Hee! Just kidding… She reads my blog…) I am going to enter this in the Lily Pad Cards Challenge to use flowers and for this week’s CPS sketch challenge.
Hey, did I tell you I am going to be a Guest Designer for Lily Pad Cards? Yeah! I coloured this with Copics then I made my own Perfect Pearls mist, both green and blue and spritzed them on the focal panel. I love how it looks! It was way too stark white before. Then I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink. I added a panel to the sketch and mirror imaged it but I stayed surprisingly close for me! What do you think?
I used up the extra mist on the doily which I pleated to make it fit better. It looks so nice and shimmery IRL! I used my heat gun to melt and distress the ribbon a bit. It looks very shabby! I used my Copics to colour the blue pearls; the green ones are straight from Kaisercraft.
