Lovely Thoughts of You by Shona

Hi there, Designer Shona here with you today to share my last July Reveal card. This time I am using the lovely Sketched Pear Blossom Set 904.

I began, using the Stamp Platform, stamping the image on white cardstock in Clear Mark and heat embossing with White Detail. Then I made a paint palette with an acrylic block and dropped a few Aquaflow marker colors on the block. The image was colored in with a water brush, picking up the colors from the block.

I stamped the image again with Clear Mark and heat embossed with White Detail, this time on Kraft cardstock.

The color was bleached out of the image, using an aqua brush that was filled with bleach.


The colored version was fussy cut, using the mini 5" scissors, into little half inch squares. They were then popped up, with foam pads to their matching places on top of the bleached version.


I made a frame from the Kraft cardstock with the Sizzix Dotted Oval die and cut out the same frame from a piece of foam, using the Tangerine machine. These were adhered together. Then I ran the Copic marker around the edges.



The frame was then sprayed with Antique Gold Mica Mist.



A piece of Copper Feathers Specialty Cardstock was cut in the Tonic Guillotine. The guillotine cuts through the fabric papers beautifully.



A few flowers were then sprayed with the same Antique Gold Mica Mist.



The sentiment from the set was stamped in the Stamp Platform on Kraft cardstock with Clear Mark and heat set with Gold Detail.



This was then die cut with a smaller oval from the Sizzix set and some Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse was sponged around the edges.



I dipped 4 large brads into my Versamark pad and they were dipped in Halo embossing powder. Holding the brad with tweezers, I heat embossed the brads to give them some gold sparkle. A hole was punched in the tag and the brad was put through the sentiment and one of the flowers, the other three were for the centers of the flowers.


The card was assembled at this point with the frame being attached to the specialty paper square. The flowers were attached with tape and foam pads around the frame and the brad for the sentiment was put through to the back of the specialty paper. The specialty paper was then attached to Harvest Gold Mirror Cardstock.


A few drops of Honey Gold Glitter drops were added around the card and on top of the flowers to simulate dew drops.


That finished off my card for today. Hope you've enjoyed my share? Below is a list of the products that I used:
