Thank You Motif

OK, last Baroque Motif card, I promise! But I really do like this set!

This card did take a little longer than the other ones because the illusion of a "reflection" was done using Baroque Burgundy ink. The words were added and then the White Craft ink was added on top of that. The card was set aside to dry. Craft ink takes a little longer to dry than the regular water-based inks. While the white was drying I stamped the flower and cut it out by hand. I didn't cut the dots around the flower image, I didn't feel they fit with the design on this card. I added a pink rhinestone brads from the new "Fire Circles" group. I affixed it to the card with a dimensional. The brad doesn't really match the burgundy card stock but once it was all assembled it blended in just fine. Those are very fun and pretty brads. And here's the shocker! I'm actually using the new stuff instead of hoarding it until it retires and then I can't use it in swaps! Imagine that, using your new stuff instead of keeping it around!!! Interesting concept! My favorite thing about this card is how the first image was stamped in Bravo Burgundy and it really makes the white just pop. And it REALLY does give the illusion of a shadow there! Just way too cool how that worked out!

Thank you for stopping by,
