I made a card this afternoon for the Creative Cottage Challenge - use white/blank space. This is to be their last challenge in this format, so we wait with baited breath to find out what's next! I will also enter it in the Verve March Diva Dare - colour me Spring. Now I made this card, photographed it and then decided it need another mount, so remade it and photographed it again and now I cannot decide which one is better - so I will put up both and get you to tell me which one is best and why, please.
Can you see the difference?
Anyway, I made this by using my CB and a Coulture Creations Embossing folder - Victorian - and then using a soft pink Copic and carefully going over the raised bits with it to highlight them (saw it in a magazine and thought I can do that!) and then added a freebie tag from the English magazine Creative Cardmaking Issue 24 on which I had stamped on the sentiment using a Verve stamp. I sponged both the tag and the backing paper with SU Pink Pirouette ink before I embossed the sentiment with Sparkling Ebony EP (and it does have a real sparkle) and then popped on a Prima rose. Three little pearls from Annabelle's sprinkles collection and it was done. Until I decided to add the mount - in a deeper pink. All the card is from SU - confetti white, blossom blush and regal rose.
