I checked out the SCS IC355~Bella Soleil
and came across this photo......
So I thought I would play along and try to make an inspired card. This was a wee bit out of my comfort zone, it's funny how things never turn out what like is in my head!
I wanted to try the Faux Patina technique and I think it was a massive fail, so I will have to try again and get it right! I embossed a Spellbinders Circle with Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug folder. I sponge a tons of different inks and sprinkled some gold embossing powder in a few spots. I used Memory Box Perched Reed Bird, Lorelai Leaf and Pastry Labels dies to make this card. The bronze pearls were made with a Viva Decor Bronze Pearl Pen. My layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches~53. I left off a couple of Stripes to make it work for me..
Popped the circle up over a Spellbinders Scallop Circle and layered it over an embossed brushed gold layer that had been distressed with Frayed Burlap ink. The sentiment is from JustRites-Just Because Set and embossed with Versafine Vintage Sepia. Here is the inside of the card......
I am entering this in the following challenges as well.....
