Inspirational #121 ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

    Today's new challenge @ Red Rubber Inspirationals is More Precious than Pearls, with Inspirational #121. I made this card for my husband, and used pearls on the flower centers and Liquid Pearls to make the heart.


This beautiful sketch #99 from Cardabilities was just the inspiration I was looking for!

    I started by stamping Well Defined Backgrounds onto white tissue paper,and applied it with gesso onto grey cardstock. Then I spritzed it with Pewter Sheer Shimmer Spray. I used Punctuation to stamp the red border using VersaMagic Red Magic Ink. I also used So Splattered, I Heart You, and Pressed Flowers. The sentiment was stamped using A Thousand Thanks, using the dimensional banner technique for the May Card Challenge @ Finally I stamped the flowers with Medallions. Here's a closer look!

Thanks for looking!
