Hi Everybody! It’s Maria from Cardbomb here today and I am so glad to have you join me today. I was in a big hurry to get my card done today as I was quite at the last minute. I’ve been really busy this week because I’ve been getting ready for a big event at the new Tonic Studios USA warehouse this coming weekend. I’m really excited about it and I’m looking forward to telling you all about it on my next post.
Since I was in a hurry it was lucky that I had these beautiful, watercolored Peonies left over from another card! I used my Blue Blitz Shimmer Powder to wash a light background over my card face. Then I splattered the background with Violet Brocade shimmer powder.
I placed the blooms and foliage on the card front and adhered some of it flat, and, some of it with foam adhesive. Have you noticed that some of the leaves are much darker than the others? They’re also embossed in white too. That’s because those are actually colored with the Nuvo Watercolor Pencils on black cardstock! I love the dramatic look of the darker leaves.
To finish off the card I stamped a sentiment from Celebrate Sentiments and popped it up. Then I added some sequins in Silver Rain to bling the card out a little. That was it for today’s card-quick and easy since I had colored my florals ahead of time.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have an amazing day!
