I love Austria, the peace, the clean streets, the invigorating air, the mountains, what is there not to love? So when the Clarity New Design Club stamp arrived earlier this month and it was an Edelweiss it immediately sparked fond memories of past visits there. So in homage to Austria here is my Edelweiss card.
Clarity Design Club Edelweiss stamp
Clarity Leafy Swirl stencil
Adirondack inks: Cloudy Blue, Lettuce
clear embossing powder
Spectrum Noir pens
Firstly I made a 15cm square easel card base with Theuva card and a separate square for the panel.
I then stamped the Edelweiss onto left over bits of Theuva card; 1 single flower, 2 stem to stem and 2 flower heads only.
I printed the Edelweiss song words onto the panel before laying the leafy swirl stencil on and brushing cloudy blue ink through.
I used Spectrum Noir pens to colour the stem, leaves and centres of the flowers before embossing the petals with clear embossing powder. I then brushed on some lettuce and cloudy blue ink to give a hint of grass and sky.
I cut the single flower and the stem to stem flowers into panels then matted them and the card panel onto black card.
Inside the card blank I used the leafy swirl stencil and cloudy blue ink to match the front panel.
I then used 3D foam pads to attach the flower panels to the card. I cut out the separate flower heads and stuck them to the flower panel inside the card.
The Clarity challenge this month is Flower Power so I think I will head over there and enter this one. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
Thank you for visiting, come again soon. Take care.
I would like to enter this card into the Clarity Challenge
