This week our lovely hostess is Connie and Connie's challenge is to...
For my card today, not only was I inspired by the use of scoring, piercing and colouring, I was inspired by the Splitcoaststamper's "Inspiration Challenge" - to use a beautiful fountain pen image as card inspiration from the hostess' Pinterest board found here. This is the image I chose from all of her beautiful and inspirational images...
I began creating my card by cutting a panel of deep red cardstock and brushing it with my Perfect Printing Pouch (an anti-static powder pouch). Then I inked up my large floral image from the "Bees & Blooms" stamp set using Versamark ink. Then I sprinkled on my detail gold embossing powder and heat set it. Then I took my panel and created a scored frame 1/8th of an inch around the edge of the panel using my Scor-Buddy and then I pierced just inside my raised score line. I wrapped two adjacent corners of the Classic Black Cardstock matted panel with "Chocolate Brown" seam binding ribbon (I didn't have any more black :( )...
Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval from Classic White Cardstock and stamped a large rose image from the retired "I Love Roses" stamp set in Versamark ink again. I added some detail black embossing powder and heat set the image.
Here's a close up my roses and gold back ground...
I coloured my rose in using the following Copic Collection:
2013 FLIP stamp set, "Happy Thoughts" and the "Happy Birthday" greeting from the "Kids Play" stamp set using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink. And of course, I added another rose image too.
So I indeed, used some SCORING, some PIERCING and some COLOURING in my card this week. I actually love how this card turned out. I sure hope my sister-in-law does too! Thanks for stopping by!
