I started with a fun fold called a star fold card. The flower is one of my crochet flowers with a paper flower and a button in the center. The stamens and edge of flower are painted with 'Sky Blue' CI Paint. Such a beautiful color! I also added some stickles.
I made some bead gel using Elmer's glue, micro beads, and blue Pearl Ex. Totally love how that turned out! This might not have been the best use for it but I'm looking forward to using it in some other applications.
The side panels were stamped with some swirls and then colored with some more Pearl Ex. I also added some piercing around the swirls. The image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils. The papers were all distressed and sponged with Broken China distress ink. The center panel has been edged with white crackle paint. I printed the sentiment from the computer, inked the edges and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
This turned out to be a very time consuming but fun card.
