Less is More - Week 119 One Layer

Evening lovelies

I've found some time tonight to whip up a little card to take part in this week's challenge over at Less is More.  This week we are to make a one layer card and this is the brief...

Coloured Card Blank
"Yes that's right, none of your boring, white, ivory, black or kraft card blanks, we want to see you add some colour"
 
So, without further ado, here's my entry...
 
 
I raided my stash of card blanks and grabbed this one, I've not used a tall card for a long time and I actually really like them.  This card base has a lilac pearlescent finish so I had to think carefully about how to stamp it.  I only really have pigment ink but I've struggled with this on cards with a glossy pearlescent surface so I opted for VersaMark and then embossed with black embossing powder and it worked really well.  I then coloured the flowers with Letraset markers and accented the flower centres with Liquid Pearls.
 
Materials used:
  • Stamps: Wild Rose Studio - Flower Doodles
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up - Black
  • Coloured with Promarker (Magenta) and Flexmarker (Wild Orchid)
  • Accents: Liquid Pearls - White Opal
 
I'll be back in a mo with another entry, couldn't stop at one! :)
