Happy Sunday friends! Colour Palette #20 gave me a mediterranean feel and I waned to create a card with the look and textures that would encompass that theme.
The Earthen Elegance bundle made me think of markets. Perhaps it was something to do with me watching a production of Aladdin Jr. this past week,which my daughter Cassidy Stage Managed at her former school. I still have the songs, the detailed sets, the vibrant colours fresh in my memory.
The background panel was die cut with the largest Nested Essentials Dies, which I extended to form a larger die cut. Then I blended Cajun Craze ink using a Blending Brush so the panel was darker on one side fading to white.
Using the larger label shape from the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask I blended Cajun Craze and Wild Wheat over the die cut panel. This created an unusual abstract pattern.
I created a variety of leaves to add depth, texture and interest to the card. The fern was die cut from Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper and blended with Cajun Craze ink. I use this technique often as I like the texture that is already provided in the DSP. The smaller leaves were die cut from Basic White Cardstock using the Gorgeously Made dies and coloured with Lost Lagoon ink. This felt a bit stark so I sponged in some Cajun Craze to tone it in with the rest of the card.
Another set of leaves die cut from Distressed Gold Paper adds just a touch of opulence into this card. This works really well with Wild Wheat which has a gold tone to it (check out the image below).
When there is a lot of pattern and colours, a black sentiment panel brings it all together with a heat embossed sentiment.
