Slivers of Silver

Ohhhh------- it is mighty hard for me to leave this much white space, but I am getting better at resisting the feeling that I MUST cover it all! The flowers are from Hero Arts, I used my Copics to color them, and also outlined the circle to add a softer edge to it. The little strip of Kraft paper -- I embossed using a Cuttlebug Folder, then used my very best new tool - the mini brayer to ink the raised portions. I had to add the silver strips of Rainbow Tape to go over two small black ink spots that somehow happened. The Rainbow Tape comes in Metallic Colors too! I only put 300 dots on this card, around the white layer and also the inner circle, refraining from the usual 600! The red paper is a little like linen, with small embossed flowers on it. It does not show well in the picture. Finished card is an A2.

  5. This card is stunning! I am soooo glad to see you leave some "white space". It really makes all your elements pop! I am still so thoroughly impressed I really can't believe that you think of soo many details and embellishments. It really is a gorgeous card.

    I feel like I gush every time I write you a comment...but it's only because you deserve it.

    And there are many times I don't write...but could!
