Whew! That’s a mouthful huh? This card loses so much in the translation to a screen. I am going to have to take some classes in macro photography because with me saying that with practically every other card, I have got to learn more.
I was inspired by the latest Mojo Monday Sketch #327 and C4C217 which had the lovely inspiration photo below. So used the colours (plus I added pink) and celebratory aspect of it for my card. I rarely mix metals but it seems to work with black and white. This cardstock is supremely stubborn and refuses to crease nicely despite scoring it properly and using my bone folder repeatedly or you would see my card insert had lovely stamped bokeh on it. I even jammed it into my floral frog to try and get the bokeh ‘confetti’ to show through the vellum. Oh well.
My camera wouldn’t focus on it because it was so faint then my camera moved slightly after I focused on a pen I held in front of it then moved it before shooting so it’s hard to see but you get the idea. Turned out so sweet. I found the trick to making it look good was to stamp very randomly and immediately generation stamp right near the first impression usually overlapping. I also added some more full impressions without the second generation and vice versa. I also airbrushed the background both the normal smooth way and with the brush tip to achieve a fine splatter pattern.
I added glitter to a brad for one heart, the two top ones were die cut from glitter tape, the ornate white one is a button with the shank cut off and the bottom one was cardstock layered 4 times and stamped with a Damask stamp using Versamark then brushed with Perfect Pearls.
