Experimenting with New Techniques

Lots of experimentation on this card.  I was interested in entering the Muse Challenge #268 so I spent a day thinking about what direction my card should take.  I knew I would use the floral theme, but the rest came to me in bits and pieces.

Embossed Get Well Card

Ultimately, I chose to focus on the following:

  • Pink and Green Color Scheme
  • Embossing
  • Black Sentiment Band
  • Floral Theme
What I changed:

  • I\’ve never done pink embossing but had been thinking about trying it for a while. The pink flowers seemed to be the perfect time.  I wasn\’t sure if my method would work, but I used Color Box Pink Pigment Ink and clear embossed on top.  I think it turned out bright and cheery, which is a plus for a Get Well card.
  • The flower and  leaf looked bland on a white card base so I made a custom background.  Again, I\’ve never done this before, but I used my Green Apple Inktense watercolor pencil and made a lightly striated background to complement the Copic greens.   
I used my new favorite stamp set:  Botanical Love By Create a Smile.
Thanks for stopping by!
