Hello again everyone...
Heather back with a make completely out of my colour comfort zone as I don't usually do delicate and pale... I'm more of a 'in your face' kinda maker!
It's good to challenge yourself sometimes though and so I picked three acrylic paints for the background and just gently swiped the colours around using a palette knife and added some hints of gold using my finger.
Over the background, I used Wow's Sexi-Hexi stamp (and huge apologies as I think it is now discontinued - arghhh!) with their Vintage Romance powder just for some delicate texture. You could of course use any Wow stamp... French Music or Go Figure would work equally as well.
I then chose a gorgeous Aall & Create A4 stamp, Blossomed Numbers by Tracy Evans, to cover the background as I wanted a textural look but not obviously textural (you have to look a bit deeper!) I chose another of the vintage powder, Vintage Champagne, as it has a beautiful subtle twinkle to it and just looks fabulous.
With the background complete, I took the same stamp and heat embossed it again using Vintage Romance once more. Using Distress Oxide ink pads in Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass and Pumice Stone, I painted on the colour and heat set.
To break up the background, I decided to add some strips of vellum and stenciled the stars on using Visible Image's Stars and Stripes stencil. Along the edges, I used the Tattered Rose and Tumbled Glass ink pads to give a hint of colour before adhering the vellum to the card.
With the floral focal point all fussy cut, added foam tape to the rear and placed in position. The sentiments were stamped using the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink pad again and adhered to the card before matting onto silver pearlescent card.And there we go. Why not challenge yourself to use colours outside your usual palette and see what you can come up with?!

See you all again soon... Heather x
