Flowery Greetings

Hello Crafters, 

how have you been keeping? Sadly my holiday is already over and the workload is already getting on my nerves. But at least I am still in the mood for lots of crafting, so I have a few cards in line for you. Unfortunately, now my household desperately needs my attention on the week-end. Where can I apply for a 48-hour-day?

Here is the 2nd card I created with the colouring book page a few says ago. I used pretty much the same concept as before, but changed it up a bit.

Since I had cut the flower for the other card from this piece, I didn't have a full card size anymore, so I cut it narrow and adhered it to a black card base. I have a set of cheap metallic watercolours I used a few days ago, to create some backgrounds (that I still need to use). These were still sitting on my desk and I noticed that the blue colour is a pretty good match to the teal I used in my colouring book. So I added to very thin strips of shimmery metallic paper along the edges. 

I also wanted to use a vellum circle this time, but that got a bit lost, so I cut a very narrow ring from the same metallic water coloured paper and adhered it to the vellum circle. That also gave me a spot to hide the adhesive. 

In the end I had to add some sequins, because there was a smeared spot on my paper. 

I am still not sure, which of of them I like better  - as usual. Here they are, side by side:

Have a brilliant day

  1. Both are beautiful, Ela. The shimmery watercolour strips are a great addition. x

  2. That pretty colouring page has given you another gorgeous card, Ela and I love the metallic strips on the edges. The coloured frame also really helps the vellum circle to pop.
    Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM.
