Majestic Bloom

Happy Sunday :)

Sharing a card that I made for my MIL's upcoming birthday using Altenew's Majestic Blooms layering stamp set:

I used pinks for the flower and greens for the leaves - a played around with some combinations of Simon Says and Hero Arts inks until I found a combination that I liked. For the card, I used a Simon Says Fog card base and layered a panel of white card stock that I embossed using a Taylored Expression embossing folder. I embellished with a lot of gold - the sentiment was stamped in gold pigment ink, then layered with gold perfect pearls, some gold perfect pearls in the centre of the flowers, and a splatter of gold sequins. Because the gold was so shiny, it was hard to capture on film but I love how it looks in real life. The flowers and the Altenew Label Love greeting were popped up with foam tape.

I will link up to the following challenges:

  • The Card Concept - I was heavily inspired by the inspiration photo this week - the flowers and the distressed background... I think that my take would be clean and layered
  • Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- I used the dies for the flower, the leaves, and panel
Thanks so much for stopping by!
