Wednesday has rolled around already and that means it is time for a new challenge at Add a Little Dazzle. This week is a color challenge and the inspiration photo is right up my alley.
I created a mixed media card that I think is still CAS (lots of white space) and used Scarlet Red Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal for my berries and heart.
My starting point was the sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch~
I rotated the sketch; for the design on the card represented as flowers here, I spattered white acrylic paint on both the card base and the vellum sheet, in both fine droplets and 'blobs'. While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled glitter over it. My goal was to replicate the blurred and snowy appearance in the photo.
Using a Die-Namites Die (Winter Branch), I die cut the branch out in white, textured cardstock x2, then sponged the die cut with Crumb Cake ink so that the recessed textured areas were still white, representing the bark on the branches. The evergreen bough portion of the die cut was lightly sponged in black.
Next I die cut the berries and heart from the Scarlet Red Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal. I shaped them so they were convex and glued them to the branch. To give the berries and heart a wet, snowy look, I added Crystal Effects followed by glitter to each berry. Between the shine of the metal and the glimmer of the Crystal Effects and glitter, I love how this turned out!
Next, I die cut out a photo frame, using SU's On Film Framelits. I determined the position of my pieces and then stamped my sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it in black.
The card was assembled and finally, SU's Dazzling Details was added along the tree branches.
Addicted to Stamps in back in full swing, and their first challenge of the year is "Make your Mark". I have made my mark with paint and sponged on ink.
Virginia's View has us starting the New Year with a 'clean slate'. My card fits the theme as there is a lot of white space and alot of white on white.
House of Cards has a glitter and/or color challenge this month. I used glitter. :)
