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.
Ultimately, I chose to focus on the following:
- Pink and Green Color Scheme
- Black Sentiment Band
- Floral Theme
- 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.
