I made this card to enter into two Lily Pad Cards Challenges (Color Challenge and Technique Challenge). The colors for the color challenge were:
The technique challenge incorporated the "Resist" technique.
To make this card, I stamped the Penny Black "Paisley Outline" stamp with Versamark ink and stamped onto white cardstock. This was then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then sponged Distress Ink (Peeled Paint and Wild Honey) over the embossed image.
I also stamped the Paisley Outline stamp (with Versamark) onto a separate piece of white cardstock, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and sponged with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Then I stamped the flower using Hero Arts "Large Stencil Flower" stamped with Versamark onto vellum, then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut out the vellum flower, then used the cut out as a guide to cut the same flower shape out of the Victorian Velvet sponged cardstock. Here's a closer look at the vellum flower on top of the Victorian Velvet sponged cardstock:The center of the vellum flower was highlighted with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink using a Cut-n-Dry pen nib. Finally, I applied various sizes of adhesive pearls to the center.
