Delicate partial embossing.


I am here again with a new card for Inspiration Destination and the Anything goes challenge that it is taking place now. This week our sponsor is Julia Spiri. I love her images. I am using Spring Orchid here and I think it is so delicate I wanted to make some soft coloring.

I colored her with Inktense pencils. I don't have much experience with them but the more I use them the more I like them and the more I want to use them. So...I will be incorporating this technique more in my cards. Besides, I want to learn for my illustrations.

I selectively embossed the background with an embossed diffuser I made some time ago and I added some pearls to ad more dimension. I wasn't sure about adding a sentiment so...I didn't. Sometimes less is better.

I hope you liked the card and you have time to participate in our challenge this week. We would love to see your creations!.



I am going to enter these challenges:
