I seemed to be short on mojo or brain power or something this week, but I finally came up with a card~
The Add a Little Dazzle Challenge this week is a technique challenge- make a flower using craft metal.
I stamped a background using the Large Elegant Word Background stamp. The Crumb Cake ink was stamped off once before stamping to my cardstock. I used some designer paper from the Delicate Asters Collection. The flower is made using the Vintage Floret Die. I die cut some white Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal with the dies and molded the flower. I love how you can shape the craft metal so easily, and it stays put once you are done! Once the flower petals were glued together with Crystal Effects, I spritzed Plum and red alcohol reinkers onto the flower.
This is where the mojo tanked. I did not like the way the color looked so I die cut another flower. I did not like the way that looked either, so I went back to my original white, spritzed flower and using blue alcohol ink, I painted over the entire flower. The combinations of ink gave the flower a mottled bluish-purplish color. I added a pearl to the center and then added greenery to the flower, using the Sweet Juliet die. I then die cut an ornamental piece from the Ornamental Add On Die set and used it to ground my flower.
All of the pieces were assembled and the sentiment from the Inspire Me Stamp Set was added. Pearls and a bit of twine finish it off.
The sketch is from Jen's Deconstucted Sketch~
It also fits in nicely to this week's 613 Avenue Create's 'Create Your Own Challenge' Challenge. I will add this to the challenge as a guest designer. :)
