Silver Lustre Flowers

Hello everyone! As you read this I am off visiting my in-laws for the weekend. But, I did create a card to post for today! (JOY!)

The stamp is from the new Floral Frenzy kit from Gina K Designs. If you haven't checked out the new Stamp TV---you have to! It is amazing! SEE ya there!

This card also features some of the new Silver Lustre cardstock from PaperTemptress that will be in the store on February 25th (more details to follow!). This stuff is amazing. You can stamp on it and color and the paper absorbs the ink and makes it shimmer. The card looks different depending on what angle you are looking at it from.

Here is one view:
Can you see all the shimmer???? Copics work a bit differently on this cardstock. The the color is a bit more muted (or pearlescent)..the blender works well to create highlights---instead of moving the color, it removes it. The Copics look beautiful on it. I am excited for everyone to try it.

<--Here is another view of the card. Lying flat you cannot see the shimmer as much. (SEE--looks different!)

The rest of the cardstock is Mica Metallic in Amber, Cappuchino and bronze. I love the gorgeous look of this cs...it has already become one of my all time favorites.

Materials used: Stamps-Elegant Flowers-Floral Frenzy (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers; Cardstock-Silver Lustre, Amber, Cappuchino, Bronze Mica Metallic (all from PaperTemptress); Spellbinders photo corner dies, circle and scalloped circle dies; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); textile embossing folder (Provocraft); hardware (We R Memory Keepers); ribbon (May Arts).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Irises are one of my favorite flowers. You picked up on one of the favorite colors. Most people just think of them as being purple. You masterfully created this card.
