Expressions in Ink – You Are So Special

I couldn’t resist The Spot Challenge (#162) this week.  Case the Designer: Maheswari Rajaguru.

I took a browse through her Pinterest page and selected this card to CASE.  Copy and Selectively Edit.

And this is the result:



For the Ombre Panel (3¾” x 3”), I chose to cut up one of the Evening Evergreen Ombre Gift Bags.

For the Triangles (2⅝” x 1⅝”), I chose the Green Ink sheet from the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper and cut three Triangles with the Stitched Triangle Die.

For the Background Panel (4” x 5¼”), I chose Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I mixed Evening Evergreen ink with water and with my trusty craft Toothbrush, I flicked color on to the panel to create the Splatter.

For the Focal image, I opted to die-cut the Leaves from the Artistic Dies set from Gold Foil cardstock.

For the Sentiment Label (2⅛” x 1”), I chose the sentiment, You Are So Special, from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Gold Embossing Powder on to a scrap of Evening Evergreen cardstock.

I decided to forgo the ribbon element as there was really no place for it.

Once all of the elements were adhered to the Evening Evergreen card base, I added Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to complete the card.

Maheswari makes some very lovely cards and it was fun to chose one and CASE it.  Hope you like my version.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda!
