Hello friends! Vivian here today to share with you a card I recently crafted that explodes with color. Quite a change from my last share here on the RRR blog!
I had a variety of media on my craft table and just allowed myself to play around with it. What resulted feels very Asian to me. This often happens in my projects when I don't think too much, which I find so interesting given the fact that I am so darn Americanized. Guess it's in the blood!
This colorful, aged effect was created by blending distress inks, stamping with Stamper's Big Brush Pens from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, misting with plain water, and heat embossing.
As a simple, yet elegant finish to my card project, I wrapped some beautiful and incredibly affordable Black Organza from the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop around my card front three times. Then I took smaller lengths and tied knots down my stream of wrapped organza. I especially love this fiber because it allows your work to peek through while adding a nice dose of texture and sheen to your projects.
Hope you have a great New Year celebration! I will be looking forward to an end to 2012, and a fresh beginning in 2013. Cheers to the realization of our dreams and intentions for the New Year!
