WCMD Thanks


I was able to get another WCMD challenge card done last night.

I knew I wanted to create my own patterned paper based on this mood board from SC using Paper Smooches' Botanicals 2 set.



I used a combination of first and second generation stamping for this, the blue and gray branches are both second generation.

Once I had filled up the panel, I went back with a variation on rock and roll stamping, except in this case I only did the rolling on a clean stamp.  I used that to add some black accents to the edges/tips of the yellow and blue branches.

I then repeated this process on the other side of the yellow branches, but this time I used Versamark and embossed using some Egyptian Gold powder from Judikins.  It's less puffy, but more sparkly.  You can see that glimmer/gleam a little better in this photo:



I used some parchment paper for the mats, as well as to soften the background behind the sentiment.  Note:  parchment paper is slippery, so you need to sand it a little before you adhere things to it.

I'm also going to link this up over at Winnie & Walter for their WCMD Pattern Play challenge.

That's all for today!  Thanks for coming by!

  19. This is lovely. Great random stamping, Love the hints of gold and the "dirty" stamping (bringing in the black with your sentiment). The parchment layers are a great idea, too (as mat and your sentiment panel).
